Hello everyone, we’re back in the office and at full operations at Mission Repair – almost.
Yesterday was incredible though – in fact Kansas was declared in a “State of Emergency” and even the Kansas Government shut down yesterday due to the Winter Storm “Q” that blanketed us with snow. We actually opened up Mission Repair yesterday and worked until about noon- then we took a vote and the employees wanted to leave for home before the roads got any worse. It was a good decision on their part…
Here’s a shot of my backyard when I got home:
There’s my two dogs in the background, and that’s about 15″ of snow covering my patio table. It’s the biggest dump of snow that I’ve ever seen since I moved to Kansas in 2001. It was a sight to see! I did use to live in Colorado, which gave me some experience with the snow. In fact, yesterday’s Kansas snow was a “normal” Colorado snow – “normal” in that you’d still go to work or school and Colorado didn’t “shut down”. It’s interesting to see the differences in people’s attitude from different states. Kansas City just isn’t prepared for this kind of weather to hit…
So the airports were all shut down, and we didn’t receive any shipments in from FedEx yesterday. In fact, it’s 10:34am we we still haven’t received any today…but we’ve been told that they will arrive.
Rest assured that we are fully staffed (actually only one employee didn’t make it in today!) and we will get these repairs pumped out as soon as possible.
Thanks for sticking in there with us. This was a strange storm that has seems to have moved on. We will keep you posted on our progress.
