We are suffering from a different PTSD at our house!  Post Traumatic Snow Disorder.  Being married to a Road supervisor can be challenging, especially during these snowstorms.  I would like to share with you his perspective.  On the first snow storm, his mantra is “people should just stay home”.  I was sympathetic, after all the Governor had called a State of Emergency.  This carried over to the next storm, finally I told him, you can’t just say that, people have to work, have medical things like dialysis etc.  That worked, and now his mantra is “just move to town”.   I understand his frustration, when they have to dig out the roads and then some do da has a compact car stuck in the middle of the road.  Once they reach the car, of course the keys are not left in it, so they have to go all the way around the section to dig out the other half of the road. As my sister would say "people are just a problem".

I think he would be more understanding if the reason they were out in the 4 foot drifts with a compact car, was because of a medical emergency or getting fired if they missed work, but going to catch the all you can eat buffet doesn’t garner much sympathy. 

I guess there are just some people that have to get out, just to see if they can make it.  I remember growing up, a very bad blizzard.  My dad drove the tractor to town, I’m not sure what the excuse was.  I’m pretty sure it was a case of cabin fever and the challenge of making it!  Not me, I’m pretty content to be “snowed in”.   After this winter, my husband wants to avoid the public too.

So as a Public Service Announcement- if you get your car stuck on a road, you can be ticketed, you can be towed at your expense.  If you have done damage to the road, you may have to pay for fixing the damage. Plus, you are hindering the job that the snow plows can do.

We will be having a “New to the Country, New to Land Ownership” Meeting where we can discuss some of the expectations for country living.  This meeting will be held, April 10, 2019 at the NE Kansas Heritage meeting room, 12200 214th Road in Holton Kansas.

Besides all of the fence laws, leasing laws etc.  we will discuss, bee keeping, planting fruit trees, Hi-tunnel greenhouses, livestock for small acreages and planting trees.  The meeting will begin at 7 pm. There is no charge for this meeting and reservations do not need to be made.  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate!!
