Hello everyone- that’s right. It was almost 60 degrees on Friday here in Kansas City. Relatively nice and warm, plenty of sunshine and the snow accumulation that we had pretty much almost melted off.
So a couple of days later and here we are. . .in the office, watching a Winter Storm Warning for our county comes to fruition. We’re under this warning until 6am Wednesday morning and here are the details in a nutshell from weather.com:
“FREEZING RAIN WILL CHANGE OVER TO SNOW TONIGHT. HEAVY SNOW WILL THEN OVERSPREAD THE AREA TUESDAY. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS BETWEEN 8 AND 14 INCHES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE ON ALL MAJOR ROADWAYS. THIS STORM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRING TRAVEL TO A HALT OVER MUCH OF KANSAS AND MISSOURI TUESDAY THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY.”
So since you live in San Diego, this is not a problem for you 😉 But the rest of the country is going to be significantly impacted by this as is my business, Mission Repair. This is the real reason for this blog post – the simple fact is that Kansas City doesn’t normally get this kind of weather, period. I’m looking in to my crystal ball now. . .and I see many shipping delays and service failures due to this storm. At this point we are planning on “business as usual” and we have some backup systems in place. However in the event of wide spread power outage and freezing temperature along with the expected 35 mph winds will freeze a person up quickly. We hope that this situation won’t be too devastating, but nature has a funny way of causing a huge mess. Here it comes!
Well I’ll be back with more blizzard-related info as it comes.
Thanks, Ryan “Chilly” Arter
