We haven’t had a snow storm like last week’s in south central Kansas for several years. It was a dandy.
When the snow first began to fall, Wichita drivers began to run into each other, slide off roadways, and overturn their vehicles. Despite city and state crews pre-treating the surfaces, the streets and highways were pretty slick at first. I patiently drove home at a snail’s pace Wednesday. I’ve learned to take a deep breath when conditions are obviously beyond my control.
Our radio station personnel were busy with calls about closings of all kinds. Lists were compiled on all the local media web pages. Social media got the word out. No one could claim the information wasn’t available … widely available!
I’ve always said we ought to use our own best judgment if we have a question about closings. You are ultimately responsible for yourself and your loved ones.
And we media people will always help as best we can.
Our thought for today is from Kin Hubbard:
“Don’t knock the weather. If it didn’t change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn’t start a conversation.”
