Icy cold this morning. Can't imagine not having power in this kind of weather. Thoughts and prayers to those people dealing with that nonsense.

Kansas farmers voted for Trump, now feel the NAFTA pain. You wanted him, you got him. Lots of those same farmers have insurance through the ACA, previously hard to get being self employed. Now they're going to lose it. Time for them to feel the pain they voted for.

There once was a man Ebenezer
Who was selfish and rude, an old geezer
But three ghosts did come calling
Found his behavior appalling
Granted one chance to repent and embrace leisure.

He arose Christmas morning
With a fervor which was storming
To spread joy and glad tidings
Seeking a legacy that would be abiding.

Gave Bob Cratchit a raise and a turkey for dinner
Made donations to the poor, those he once thought sinners
For the young Tiny Tim, he saved the lad's life
And took the four Cratchit daughters to be his wife.

The best weather reports in Kansas City can be had on most smartphones and internet.

Just go to NOAA where it's updated every hour or sooner if need be. Get all the weather information a person needs minus any drama from all the weather drama queens. But if watching the drama queens is your thing then by all means keep doing it meantime I will continue to get accurate forecasts.

Here is a link to NOAA in left hand upper corner enter your zip code hit go and it will display the information best suited for your area.

Now if you want the real technical break down go down the page to below the additional forecast area and click on Forecast Discussion. It breaks the report down along with showing aviation reports. The site has decent radar and the ability to show the path of storms by looping the radar. Any way a cool site to use and learn to use.
