Last week’s snow storm was an unusual event for south central Kansas. It’s been several years since we had a storm that closed all the schools and upset everyone’s schedules.
In spite of all our best media efforts to warn drivers, many experienced the heartbreak of a traffic accident as the snow began to fall and ice began to form on roadways. Some were injured.
We sometimes say Wichita drivers have to re-learn how to drive on ice every time it shows up on the streets.
This storm generated terrific interest because it was unusual for the area, and people shared their experiences and photos on Facebook. Social media was in its infancy the last time we had a big winter storm in south central Kansas.
I hope you made it through O-K … without injury and without too much weather-related turmoil in your life. It’ll probably be a few more years before we see another storm like this. Or we could see one next week!
Our thought for today is from Michael Pritchard:
“No matter how rich you become, how famous or powerful, when you die the size of your funeral will pretty much depend on the weather.”
