They were just starting to thaw a little, and now states like Kansas and Texas have to deal with more snow and harsh winter conditions.

Melisa Raney tells how they're bracing for a second round.

Whipping winds, whiteout conditikons and treacherous roads.

For people in the Plains this weather is like winter storm deja vu.

Just last week, a storm dumped 22 inches of snow on parts of Kansas.

Now they're dealing with another one.

"This one could be much more treacherous to travel in and we just ask you to exercise that more abundance and caution," says Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback.

In Kansas City, people are still trying to dig themselves out of the snow dumped on them last week and now they're facing more.

"You can see behind me what we're dealing with," says Kansas City resiident Teresa Moore.

Officials are pleading with residents to stay off the roads.

"We declared a state of emergency for Kansas City, Missouri," says Kansas City, Mo. Mayor Sly Jones.  "We tried our very best to give as much notice of the potentiality."

The storm walloped the Texas Panhandle.

If you take a look at the view from CNN I-Reporter Michael Jasons' front porch in Amarillo, you can see the wind blow snow drifts from one to three feet.

And another one from Jason Boyett shows a yardstick peeking out of an almost three-foot snowdrift.

Video from the National Weather Service shows what those who ventue out have to deal with, strong winds and poor visibility, from what they're calling a crippling, historic blizzard.

While millions of people are seeing snow, the southeast is expected to get rain.
