23 May Laura: Surprise Blizzard
Park, Kansas - I had a funny feeling this year that we may catch a late cold snap, however, if someone would have told me we would have a good old fashioned prairie blizzard starting April 29th, I probably would have shaken my head. Freeze yes, blizzard no. But blizzard AND freeze are what happened in western Kansas where our headquarters is located.
It was quite an ordeal for our crew as they come from various winter weather backgrounds (some with none). Albert, one of our returning veterans, said, "The blizzard was definitely a surreal experience. Only saw that on TV normally. Being stranded without electricity and water made you appreciate the small things in life more, the stuff we normally take for granted. And to be honest, I'm more of a sunny and blue sky kind of person!"
