TKC QUESTION: WHILST FREEZING DRIZZLE PANICS COMMUTERS, HAS KANSAS CITY FAILED THIS WINTER??? CRAIG GLAZER BLAMES LOCAL WEATHER FAKE NEWS!!!
Now in the winter of our discontent we cope with local government, media and many institutions struggling to survive in the cold.
The toy train streetcar is back up and running after going down for nearly two days during a mild ice storm. Never-mind that the bus proved to be the real workhorse for downtown commuters amid typically inclement weather.
Meanwhile, here's a complaint echoed by many local neighborhoods during this week's winter blast . . .
Fox4: Neighbors fed up when untreated road leads to numerous crashes
And all of this leads us to a moment of cold deliberation . . .
HAS KANSAS CITY FAILED THIS WINTER??? IS THIS TOWN LOSING THE ABILITY TO WORK IN AVERAGE COLD WEATHER???
Of course we want to share all perspectives on this issue and RIGHT NOW OUR PAL CRAIG GLAZER PENS ON EPIC HOT TAKE ON THIS KANSAS CITY WINTER . . .
Take a look:
Craig Glazer: More Fake Weather Reports Becoming A Financial City Disaster!
They did it again! More media b.s. on ice and snow storms close our city all week, AGAIN! Something needs to be done on this continued closing of Kansas City by extremely poor news casts all day and night on ice and snow storms that never happen or are at worst just minor and far from reason to shut down our businesses and schools! It needs to stop. Action by local businessmen and city leaders need to make them stop it.
Lets face it this 'ain't' Miami. However look at our bad weather calls for the last five years, total lies. Almost no major snow or ice EVER. Yes there have been some light snows and even some cold rain that freezes up a bit early in the morning or in the middle of the night, but very few maybe 10% of what is predicted at best. This past week is a great example of the media for lack of a better word, 'lying' or misleading our city with CLOSE IT DOWN mentality, all really just to get ratings and 'NOT PROTECT US' at all. One would think with their horrid record of predictions, like mine sometimes in football, they'd cut it out. Nope it gets worse.
Media called for school closings for no reason all week, there was NEVER that kind of bad weather at all. Streets on Monday were a bit slick early, just a bit but not as the day rolled on. Last night we watched the t.v. news to see their explanation of the 'ice storm' coming at 8pm, never did and getting worse all night, so nobody left home except for emergencies I suppose. Reality was no rain til maybe 10pm for a bit and little to no ice on streets that I could see, I drove in it no big deal.
Our economy can't afford this malarkey. Business closes early for the fake bad weather, stores and malls are empty, nobody goes to events that have been scheduled for weeks and months. It is just unfair and costly. Can't they say 'might happen' or be careful when you drive we aren't sure but maybe....by now that seems fair huh.
Kansas City has become one of the nations milder winter areas located in the Midwest. Yes it gets cold and dreary, but remember when you were a kid, this is nothing compared to what was needed to close schools in the 60's-90's, nothing. Hey the east cost would love our winters right?
Well the good news is winter is about over...but oh no now comes 'fake' tornado warnings...boy we sure have had lots of them destroy our Plaza the last many years! Uh, none.
Please weather stations STOP IT!
