Kansas City Worry: Not Ready For Winter?!?

So far 12th & Oak hasn't garnered a great deal of confidence from residents.

As we noted last night, a bit of ice and less than 3 inches of snow had streets empty and trash pickup moved back.

Now, even mainstream media is putting winter worries on blast . . .

Looking ahead to this upcoming winter, are we more prepared this year than last?

"A lot of the shortage was within the Southwest Power Pool ... Some of the things they've started to do is look at making sure the transmission system is robust enough to get energy where it's needed throughout the area," a local official said. "It's making sure that, if there are new lines needed, they're being built. If there are lines that need to be upgraded, they're being upgraded."

Local gas company Spire was also affected by the winter blast as natural gas refineries in the South were taken offline for a few days.

Even worse . . .

We're getting advice to conserve energy and that isn't going over well with ANYBODY.
