On Wednesdays Ellen and I stop by the downtown Farmer’s Market in Overland Park every Wednesday after our workout at the YMCA.
Autumn in Kansas City is a beautiful time of the year.
Winter just keeps coming at us…
We had a hailstorm with 1/4 inch hail…and it piled up around…
The last snow storm was an “event” so what do you call it’s encore just 5 days later? In Kansas and Missouri (Missouri was declared a disaster area) we were again pummeled with about 10 inches snow. This one was harder to measure since Bob started shoveling at 4:30 in the morning, shoveled again before noon and then shoveled for the third time when it seemed be almost done snowing. It did snow another 1-2 inches overnight. This time the snow was very wet and stuck to everything like a thick frosting.
During the storm; we shoveled three times. The snow was a very dense, wet and heavy snow. After the storm I tried to get a few pictures to capture how much snow we really had on the ground… Behind our house a tree was uprooted, toppled over taking a power pole with it. It caused Mission Road to be closed and and knocked out power out for hundreds of homes in Fairway. We were lucky, this time, we did not lose our power. (Usually, it is just the opposite, we are first to lose power and last to be restored.) We did hear the transformer “blow” when we were out shoveling.
Fairway had a contest for most creative snow fort. Here are a few creations around Fairway:
