Did COVID Winter Defeat Kansas City?!?!

The arctic blast that panicked Kansas City seems to have shaken confidence in our institutions as hardware stores are now enjoying a run on generators and a bevy of other more impractical survival gear. 

Even worse . . . 

AFTER SUPER BOWL FAIL AND ARCTIC CHILL: DID COVID WINTER 2021 DAMAGE KANSAS CITY'S SELF CONFIDENCE!?!?

Don't worry, it happens to other guys too. 

Still, as some readers have noted, for so long this cowtown has bragged about "momentum" and now that same force is working in the opposite direction. 

Moreover . . .

There's still a great deal of Winter on the way.

Check the links for news that's somewhat more hopeful:

KSHB: Southwest Power Pool no longer under emergency energy alert

41 Action News: KCMO Public Works assesses 2020-2021 snow season

Fox4: Evergy explains how it picked areas for controlled power outages during deep freeze

WDAF: Ultimately, 270,000 Evergy customers experienced outages on Feb. 16. About 60,000 had outages the day before.

KMBC: Kansas utilities asked to form customer plan for expected price hike in energy bills

Arrowhead Pride: Yes, pessimistic Chiefs fans can step away from the ledge

CBS: A year into the coronavirus pandemic, many U.S. workers are anxious or depressed

You decide . . .

Dumb question.

Funny picture.

We'll call it a push.

The Chiefs diverted attention in 2020 but reality is 2021. KC is all hype.

A couple of snow flakes or a few rain drops defeats Kansas City. The city is a mess anytime. The chiefs are the least of our worries right now.

Sounds like future energy bills are going to make Frank White tax bills look generous in comparison.

Good call.

Bad leadership has defeated Kansas City. Between lockdowns, failures of public services, and grift city leadership is taking this once great city into a bleak future. We had a good run.

6:14 For approximately 5 years now most celebrities, comedians, news people have all abandoned talent in their various fields to take the easy road by bashing Trump and Conservatives 24/7.

And here too you find (you) the untalented, non-contribuers continuing to take the easy path of bashing whoever for whatever while they slap that tired old kotex of feined offense on their 💕 bleeding hearts 💕 like they f**king care.

I saw on ESPN; Patty Cakes ran 457 yards backwards trying to get away from the snowflakes in Kansas City.

Winter did not kick Kansas or Missouri's ass at all. Those 2 states did alright overall. Texas on the other hand got it's ass kicked badly and then it "got it's nose rubbed into a cow pie".
