Good evening friends,
I know that we already talked about it earlier in the day, but the weather in Kansas City was a bit troubling for us. We had a call for about 8″ of snow today and we got it.
For those of you that don’t live in snow states, this might be a strange concept for you. For those of us that live in the Midwest, it’s typically not a problem…but it does create some hassles.
For example, flights from KCI (Kansas City Airport) were cancelled tonight, which included the FedEx planes that are carrying all of the repairs that we shipped today. So trying as hard as we did- we got things in and out, pretested, repaired and quality controlled for shipping; devices just won’t reach their destinations tomorrow as planned.
Additionally, as the roads become slower when traveling around the city, we need to plan for a few extra minutes of driving time when we are due to arrive somewhere. I had a business meeting today, I was a little late, but we’re all in the together so these things are typically acceptable.
Applebees closed. This was the big bummer. I guess they felt it necessary to close their restaurant early to let their employees go home. I had to go the Chipotle instead for a burrito!
All in all, the weather just makes for a bit of hassle for all of us, but we need it. It can’t always be beautiful outside can it?
Well, for whatever problems the weather in our area caused for you, I hope your travels were safe and sound. I’m home now, smelling the awesome crockpot of Santa Fe Chicken with cilantro rice that Dandra has cooking.
Cilantro rice? Darn, I went to Chipotle for lunch, had a burrito bowl with cilantro rice in it. Oh well, I won’t tell Dandra that little tidbit, give her accolades for her version of the tasty rice and eat it with a smile. Thanks Old Man Winter; if it wasn’t for you I would have had a chicken strip platter for lunch 😉
Take care, Mission Repair will be open in the morning as usual and I’ll be there. Good night.
