Snow Day in Kansas City

A big ol’ blizzard came through yesterday and turned Kansas City into a winter wonderland.


In the end, the snow was as deep as Scooby is tall. Needless to say, that made going outside a real challenge for the elderpin.


Charlie Machete, on the other hand, enjoyed every romp he got in the white stuff.

The weather wasn’t all fun and games, though. At least 7 cars got stranded right outside my house throughout the course of the day, and wrecks littered the roads and highways all over the city.

The Big Snow of 2013 (aka Winter Storm Q) led to a state of emergency being declared in Kansas City, with schools, businesses and even some medical facilities shutting down for the day. I felt grateful to be able to work from my warm, safe home all day, surrounded by the dogs.

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.

  1. We are just starting to get some snow and ice here in Indiana. Ray loves the snow so it’s hard to get him back in the house in the mornings but his mama would rather snuggle in the blankets.

  2. Oh I hope we will get no snow – that looks scary to me ;o)

  3. We’re still trying to get out from under all the snow in Wichita. Dottie loved it the first day and had a good romp in it but now it’s up to her shoulders and to Boomer’s belly and they aren’t liking it one bit. Neither is my hubby though, he couldn’t even get out of the driveway yesterday, we had to shovel the car out!

  4. Lots of the white stuff! We have snow kissing the tops of the mountains here and down in the valley it is brown, brown & yes brown – ha:) Happy Friday

  5. It’s a “cool” 68 here right now. I think it got up to 72 – after yesterday’s high of about 54. Our weather can’t decide whether to be hot or cold. I’d love to see some snow on the ground – bit am really hoping for fair weather tomorrow as its my first 10k of the year. Hoping for a PR 🙂
