Record breaking snowfall in Wichita, KS to start the new year - 1/1/2021

Above All That Drama

Record breaking snowfall for the first day of 2021 in Greater Wichita. By 10am, the official measurement for Wichita was 5" and counting, beating the 1925 record of 4.2" for Jan 1. The last time Wichita saw at least 5" of snow was back on Feb 4, 2014. Fortunately the holiday meant a lot of drivers were not on the roads, but still, there were a host of issues across roads in the city.

Ooo..ooo!! This is why I made the decision to move from my hometown Chicago, back down south 25 years ago, because waking up dealing with this and having to hit the Dan Ryan expressway, in this kind of weather to get to work was becoming a hazard
