Check your winter weather IQ

December 6, 2013

What’s the difference between sleet and freezing rain? Is a “winter weather event” the same as a blizzard? How is kitty litter related to snow and ice?

If your inquiring mind has wondered about these things, you can get your questions answered during Winter Weather Preparedness, presented by Matt Miller, meteorologist for Kansas First News in Topeka.

Miller will present from noon to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 11, in Webb Hall. The event is sponsored by Emporia State’s office of emergency Management.
