Nasty winter storm moving our way

WATERLOO (AP) -- Holiday travelers are scrambling to adjust their plans as a fast-moving snowstorm threatens to bring long delays along with a white Christmas for millions of people throughout the West and Midwest.

The storm system was already snarling traffic in Arizona on Tuesday, with blizzard-like conditions in the north. A dust storm south of Phoenix set off a series of collisions involving as many as 20 vehicles. At least four people died.

The blustery weather in Arizona was part of a storm system that promised to bring more than a foot of snow to parts of Colorado and southern Utah by midday Wednesday. Blizzard warnings were likely on Christmas Eve in Kansas and other Plains states.

The storm was expected to crawl across the Plains states through Christmas Day.
