MAYOR SLY DECLARES KANSAS CITY STATE OF EMERGENCY!!! SNOW POUNDS THIS COWTOWN!!!

Photobabe: Brittany Snow

Consider this an open thread to deny global climate change, play politics with the weather and reference my favorite Kevin Smith movie regarding the urban dictionary meaning for a snowball . . .

KANSAS CITY STATE OF EMERGENCY

City of Kansas City, Mo., Mayor Sly James has declared a state of emergency in response to extreme winter weather that is challenging the City’s snow removal and emergency response activities. This declaration makes it possible to fully access all possible resources and minimize the storms impact on residents.

City crews are continuing to respond to the blizzard weather conditions in the metro area. There are currently 250 snow plows in operation on primary and arterial routes.

The City requests that residents minimize travel during this weather event in order to allow snow removal crews and emergency responders greater ability to perform duties.

The City’s Emergency Operations Center is activated at a level two, and personnel representing key City departments, as well as KCPL, are present and working together to monitor the event and coordinate activities among City departments providing snow and ice removal and emergency responders from the Police and Fire departments.


Emergency shelters

Nine of the ten City’s Parks and Recreation Department Community Centers will be open during normal business hours to serve as warming centers. Please call to confirm the centers are open.

Driving and parking

Phases I and II of the City’s Snow Ordinance remain in effect. As outlined in the Snow Ordinance, motorists parked on assigned Emergency Snow Routes face the possibility of vehicles being ticketed or towed. Vehicles without adequate tire tread that get stuck on a major thoroughfare can also be ticketed.

In residential areas, motorists are asked to park vehicles off-street if possible. If a vehicle must park on-street, the following parking practice is being requested:

-On streets that run north/south, please park on the west side of the street.

-On streets that run east/west, please park on the north side of the street.

Parking vehicles off-street during snow plow operations greatly enhances the ability of snow plows to remove snow, especially in cul-de-sacs, dead ends and narrow streets. When on-street parking obstructs the ability of a snow plow to safely proceed, it is possible that the street will be skipped.

Utilities

The City has been informed that KCP&L crews have been placed on standby alert and additional restoration materials have been staged at various locations throughout their service territory. If power outages occur as a result of this storm, these crews will be called upon to restore power as quickly and as safely as possible.

Plowing

Residents wanting to report slick spots or missed streets are advised that while crews are running assigned snow routes, it is assumed that all streets are slick. Only after all snow routes have been run does the City’s 3-1-1 Action Center accept requests for slick spots and missed streets. Given the weather forecast, it is anticipated that this will be at least 36 hours after snow has stopped falling.

Fallen tree limbs

Requests for removal of tree limbs from the rights-of-way should be directed to the 3-1-1 City Action Center, at 311 or 816-513-1313.

He's already called Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Holder to complain that Kansas City has gotten far too white.

To you skanks that have time to fill your day reading worthless blog shit instead of cleaning out your garage, GET YOUR FRIGGIN' CAR OFF THE STREET.

NIGGERS don't do snow and cold. I love it, for just that reason.

Isn't it past time for Tony to complain that the street in front of his mother's house hasn't been cleared yet?

Yes, Dickhead, the climate has indeed changed. Last summer it was hot. It wasn't as hot in the fall. Now it's winter, and it's cold. Snowing too.

And I absolutely guarantee another warming period from April through August.

It's been happening that way for about half a billion years. I'm sure mankind, and mankind alone, must be responsible. See? Now I'm a deep thinker like Tony.

The mayor has called for a state of emergency and from that you get the fact that he hates whites? Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't, but it's not any different if he does from the fact that people are on here being racist against him. FYI snowflakes have six points. Everyone is a shield of David. A symbol of the real Jews. Christ was black Jew and the whole world is being reminded of it. Chew on that!

Has Sly passed a microphone or camera in the past two days that he hasn't licked? Give it a break and actually LEAD the city.

9:43- there's a huge difference between racists attitudes directed at the Mayor and any coming from the Mayor.

And if you don't get why, ask Chuck to explain it you.

Sly is to politics what pus is to a boil.

10:18, the only basis for you accusing the mayor of "racist attitudes" is that he's black, and you're white, so obviously, he's the racist.

Privileged white boys like you and Chuck are so disgusted with your own miserable lives and making so little of the opportunities given to you that you just hate it when a black person is successful.

Uh 10:58- I never accused the Mayor of racist attitudes.

I said there is a DIFFERENCE between racist comments made by the Mayor and those made by a private citizen.

Why are you so quick to make assumptions about the race and gender of others and their motives, and to angrily accuse others of racism? Are you incapable of a rational and intellectually honest discussion of matters involving race? Because THAT's what's wrong with the black community. An unwillingness to honestly face and confront the shortcomings of contemporary black culture.

And if the Mayor were, in fact, asking comments that were racist, could you admit it?

Brittany Snow began overnight....slow, soft, quiet, a little flaky at times (like a virgin). By mid-morning she was riding hard in the saddle, and howling like a banshee! At noon, she'd laid waste to countless metro residents, toying with them and then discarding them by the side of the road! After a brief respite, she was ready for more and desirous of a multiple snowgasm. By Thursday evening she was totally spent and elusively drifting from place to place seeking a haven for some deep thoughts. Having lost her sense of purpose from earlier in the day, she succumbed to exhaustion, drifted asleep, and dreamed of being plowed by a man with a big blade mounted on his front end.
The end.

The Plowing in Residential Areas Will Begin NEVER said...

This snow is really not so bad, but this city government's response to snow is always negligent. That is the only reason why it is tough to get around town today.

Stay tuned

Think the streetcar can get through 12" of snow? We can put a plow on the front and put it to good use on days like this.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Mo., mayor Sly James tweeted Thursday for Kansas Citians to tweet “acts of kindness and citizenship taking place” around the metro during the storm.

NORTHLANDER'S BE MADE AWARE that you might as well take a vacation day on Friday.. Reason why you ask? Simple, the city crews won't make it up to the northland neighborhoods until late Sunday evening. City advises to fend for yourself as the city workers will be cleaning the urban core first so that the unemployed folk will be able to catch the Metro ATA to get their EBT and Obama phones rejuvenated. TRUE STORY! More at 5 and 6 Kansas City, just not working for YOU!!!

Jesus was an Essene and was in no fuckin way (Nor was King Tutor any pharohs)a black guy.

He lived in Qumran very close to where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

He spoke Aramaic and would be considered a mystic in today's world.
