The storm last week hit California, New Mexico, Nevada and Arizona.
Portions of New Mexico had several inches of snow — especially at higher elevations — and near white-out conditions were reported near Albuquerque. Flagstaff in Arizona had 11 inches of snow early Sunday, while metro Phoenix and other parts of central Arizona were drenched with several inches of rain, causing the cancellation of sporting events and parades.
The weather was blamed in at least 10 deaths in traffic accidents. The storm also caused hundreds of rollover accidents, including one that injured three members of singer Willie Nelson's band when their bus hit a pillar on Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, about 75 miles northeast of Dallas.
Early Monday, the Texas Department of Public Safety said two people died in separate wrecks Saturday night on snow-covered roads near Amarillo and Dumas.
Nonetheless, some were excited when they awoke to several inches of snow in southwestern Oklahoma on Sunday.
"It looks great. I love the snow," said Damaris Machabo, a receptionist at a Holiday Inn motel in Altus.
