New Year's snowstorm drifting snow patterns

I arrived back home in the St. Louis metro area late on New Year's Day, just as the snowstorm was beginning to blanket the region. I spent a few hours out in the metro shooting video, but didn't capture anything of note. We ended up with one to 3 inches of snow in the fields east of St. Louis. With the wind picking up toward morning, I decided to head back out in the afternoon today to look for snowdrift patterns. These natural formations really are something to see, and are one of my favorite wintertime photo subjects. These images were my favorites from the afternoon, all shot on the Canon 50mm F1.8 lens:

These images are part of a larger gallery of snowdrift patterns containing images from previous events.

We're going to get walloped with even more snow tonight and tomorrow. 10-12 inches of snow possible southeast of st. Louis while 6-9 inches are possible for the rest of the stl metro. The wind chill could be as low as -30. I wonder if there could be thundersnow because I saw a few of them last year during the late march snowstorm and there was less snow than this one.
