KANSAS CITY WINTER 2019: WORST SNOW & ICE REMOVAL FAIL IN DECADES!!!



The return of a real Winter to Kansas City reveals this town to be completely unprepared for any kind of weather event.

Moreover, ask around and one conclusion is clear:

2019 HAS BEEN ONE OF THE WORST YEARS FOR SNOW & ICE REMOVAL IN RECENT KANSAS CITY HISTORY!!!

There was a lot of hype about "pre-treating" roads today but those efforts didn't make it far outside of the loop and nowhere near neighborhood street. Moreover, the last from the major snow is still mostly on the roads.

Bigger, better cold weather town's don't shut down for the snow but because of years of misplaced priorities, KCMO is forced to cancel just about everything because of typical Winter weather. Snowfalls are nowhere near a record pace.

The scariest thing about this recent spate of Winter weather is a glimpse at how horribly unprepared KCMO has become in coping with average snowfall.

Snow FAIL Buy Local Plea

Winter impacting locally-owned KC businesses

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - No matter what a store carries inside, this winter, it's what's outside that really matters. "When there's a storm coming in and people know it's about to hit we've had a lot of people coming in," said Rachel Scheffler, a store associate at Brookside Toy and Science.


Tragic KCMO City Hall Snow FAIL Betrays Both Humankind And Beasts

KC Pet Project taking in record number of animals because of snowstorms

KC Pet Project said it is taking in a record number of animals because of the snowstorms.The animal shelter said owners are leaving their dogs outside, which has been a big problem this year."We actually had a dog come in just yesterday, she actually had drool that was frozen," said Tori Fugate, of KC Pet Project.Fugate said dozens of dogs are dealing with the same situation.


SNOW FAIL LIFE LESSON

School districts cancel classes for Wednesday as another round of snow hits the metro

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Another round of snow is falling across the metro. Something all too familiar this winter as we have already received more snow than the last three winters combined. Because of slick road conditions and temperatures, many metro schools canceled classes and activities for Tuesday evening.


Snow Breaks Biz Budgets

Snow creating budget issues for companies, lots of work for contractors

Each time Kansas City sees 2 or more inches of snow, it becomes a busy time for contractors clearing parking lots and takes a toll on those paying for it.When school districts across the metro close, the Boys & Girls Club opens to families needing a place for children to go."I spend a lot of time on the phone prepping for a school-out day," said Dred Scott, the president of the Kansas City Boys & Girls Club.


KCMO NORTHLAND NEGLECTED!!!

Northland neighborhoods fed up with snow-packed and ice-covered streets

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- With another round of snow coming, Kansas City residents are worried about their neighborhood streets. Some communities in the Northland say they never see snow plows, and the conditions are downright dangerous. Donnie Janssen's Northland neighborhood, Pembrooke Estates near 89th and Indiana, has been an icy, snowy mess just about all winter long.


Golden Ghetto Better Prepared

High-tech bridge in Lenexa built for snow

LENEXA, KS (KCTV) -- It's been a busy winter in the metro. "We're on storm number nine but we keep doing all these anti-icing events," Chip Voigts, who is with Lenexa's Municipal Services, said. Voigts and his team at Lenexa's Municipal Services keep an eye on road conditions with cameras set up across the city.


Snow FAIL Starves Service Industry

Restaurants feeling effects of long winter

"It's just been a pattern, every single weekend, after weekend -- just the same thing with a storm. For us, you don't know how to prepare," said Jasper J. Mirabile Jr. co-owner of Jasper's.

Kind of scary if you think about some of the worst storms in KC history and how this current administration would have acted.

Is Sly even in town? Haven't seen or heard much out of him lately.

Jones J. said...

Don't get ahead of yourself. Springtime means flood season and in a lot of ways that's much more dangerous than snow. In Winter people tend to stay inside but people always underestimate what their car can do in the rain.

Does pre treatmeant mean a lot of trucks riding around with their plows up? Because that's all that I saw today.

The bright side here is that the students attending KCPS really aren't missing anything in their partially accredited classes. They'll learn more by shoveling.

Hey Rainman,
Snowplows made of gold is no more clever or funny than shitty diapers, geezers and your other pathetic regurgitation. Next time you see your dad, punch the hell out of him for not pulling out sooner.

Do the animal shelters offer accommodations for gender-neutral pets? This is a vital question for all residents!

Anonymous said...

Yes they do. As a matter of fact, boy pets that have had their balls removed are particularly welcome.

Guess you guys should get together and push for a big tax increase! Snow plows, salt and drivers cost money. Lots of it.

Maybe a 2% income tax might shut you pussies up once and for all.

Or is whining about it and doing nothing somehow better?

Mr. Diversity said...

Nope, need to use that tax money for bow ties's pre-K.

Anonymous said...

And yet another reason that the northland needs to annex ourselves away from kansas city and create our own town. What a worthless mayor.

Anonymous said...

Oh, because the mayor wears bow ties! ROFL! LOL! What wit!

So I see whining about it IS better.

“Snow plows, salt and drivers cost money. Lots of it.” So do toy trains, jazz museums and street name changes. Your prince, Mayor Lardass, and his cronies need to reconsider priorities.

What's most comical is to hear from clowns like Hernandez about how it';s just impossible to provide decent snow removal (or maintenance, pothole repair, or much of anything else)because of all the "lane-miles" KCMO has, as though that had somehow been imposed on them.
When you annex property, the law says that you have to provide the same services that are already being provided.
And you're not much of a "big or world class" city if you choose to spend tax money or superficial crap and then complain that you don't have the funds to clear the city of snow.
Don't hear much about de-annexation from this crew.
Just the same old excuses.
It never changes.

Anonymous said...

Well, if you read the post it sounds like the plan is to split from KCMO and form their own government.
Now go potty and don’t forget your coat and helmet if you play outside today.

Anonymous said...

@6:21am
Actually a de-annexation requires a vote of BOTH parties and voters in KCMO would never approve of anyone splitting off.
With the weather the way it is, it's a great time to stay inside and review state statutes.
Especially before making childish comments.

Gopher boi was bloviating on the news about KCMO starting with 13000 tons of salt and KCMO had to get an additional 10000 tons. While bloviating he was uncontrollably shuddering because KCMO had to spend money that Slie could have given to developers.

I thought you geriatric fucktards didn't like socialism? How about you complaining fucks get your lazy asses out of bed and shovel your own fuckin streets! How about that????

Interesting idea. How much of a reduction in property taxes will we get if we do the city's job for them?

^^None. If you have time to piss and moan on here all day, you have time to shovel your fucking street! Here's a clue for you: Matlock is a rerun today anyway! Now get to work and quit bitching.

Actually, @6:49, you are completely wrong!

The Missouri Supreme Court decisions relating to the few similar de-annexations that have occurred did not require a approval vote by both parties.

The Court in all three instances has taken the position that the residents within the City that annexed the land made their desires known at the time of annexation, and since the residents of the annexed land did not have a vote until the 1980 Constitutional Amendments required approval by both parties, only a vote in the annexed area is now required.

Should the petition process ever bring this question to a vote, that voting would be restricted to the residents living in the Northland, and a simple majority of those residents could accomplish the de-annexation. If that happened, the Court would then appoint a Panel to monitor and arbitrate the de-annexation process.

The Northland area would then have the option of forming their own Municipality or of merging with any adjoining Municipality.

The voters of KCMO south of the River would have no say in the matter, just as the residents north had no say in 1951, and hopefully the Southland residents could wave bye-bye as half their land, about 40% of their population and 63%-65% of their City revenues went away.

That's the actual function of a local government. To plow and fix the roads that we pay these excessive taxes for. BTW, snowflake is a Republican term. Just one more thing you limp dick liberals have to steal from us. Fuck socialism and fuck you!!

@ 10:29, amid all the gnat buzzing and feeble self-hatred motivated criticism flying around, I think you asked a question, so I'll try to answer.

One of the three instances of de-annexation that have occurred in Missouri, one involved an "unnamed" Charter City (located to the east of here, directly west of East St. Louis), so my guess (please note, guess)would be that KCMO couldn't successfully prohibit such a de-annexation, although they could probably delay it by using one of their pet judges, but in any case the Supreme Court would most probably have to have the final say anyway. The Court still usually follows its own precedents though.

If the Star were to still be in existence, I'm having a lot of fun imagining the Editorial Furor that would ensue.

There haven't been any reports of fatalities on the streets today. I'm just glad people were able to make it to work safely. Hopefully, they will get back home without an trouble as well.
