First snow storm in Southeast US brought new outdoors learning opportunities. Flight delays, cancellations, emergency preparedness, weather preparedness, and snow sports and activities.
#PlanB #BePreparedToChange #LongTrails #WeatherReports ==> “After about half of mile of trudging through more than half a foot of snow that dropped last night, we realized that finding trail was already difficult, and yet another 5 to 8 inches of snow is expected today and tonight. This realization (coupled with a little common sense) brought us to the decision to hike this trail another day in the future. We’re now headed into town for a hot cocoa and in search some fried chicken.”

#WindEnergy in #Kansas. ==> “In the first three months of 2017, two wind farms — the 200-megawatt Cimarron Bend II wind farm in Clark County and the 280-megawatt Western Plains wind farm in Ford County — came on line. That brings Kansas to 4,931 megawatts of generation capacity, according to AWEA.” (http://www.kansas.com/news/business/article148442094.html) Following Melissa & Mark Thompson on their way to #Colorado.

Note: “Since my accident in January of 2016 no longer am able to participate in the sports I used to be able to. However, I’m still more than able to hike, camp and partake in the plethora of adventures available to those with willing spirit.”
