I love snow. Love it, love it, love it. I've always wanted to live in an area where it snows more than once a year. While Kansas City isn't quite the place to fulfill that dream, it's better here than in Arkansas. Two nights ago it started to ice (hey KC, remember 2002?). Last night, that ice turned into snow, and it's been snowing off and on since. It doesn't look like it's going to be enough snow to get out there and sled around, but it's still darn pretty.
One bad thing about snow and ice in Kansas City, or rather Missouri, is MoDOT. Don't get me wrong, MoDOT does an incredible job at getting on the roads throwing salt mixtures, or getting snow off for people to drive. But that's where the problem comes in. They do a good job on melting the ice, but that melted water then seeps into cracks in the road, freezes and expands, thus breaking big chunks out of the road - aka potholes.
In directly related news, Missouri was named the 2nd worst state in America for their road conditions. Our saving grace, Hawaii. Say, how many miles of road does Hawaii have?
