Kansas 20181110

When we moved from the San Francisco area to the Kansas City area, the biggest change was the weather. Before we moved people asked, "Why are you moving there? It's so flat."

Once we moved, we had figured out that's it's not flat in the Kansas City area. We haven't been to many places around the state, but much of it is flat though.

After living in a small house on a small lot so the neighboring buildings were only a couple meters away, we bought a house here on a one acre lot. The mowing is getting old after a few years and with our daughter at college, it might be time to think about a smaller house and a smaller lot.

Another thing we learned is that the state has what my wife calls "adventure weather". In the Bay area, the weather was about the same every day in the time scale of a week. Here, if you don't check the weather forecast for the current day, you don't know what you're in for. Even then, the meteorologists get it wrong.

A few weeks ago it was hot and we had so much rain that the sump pump gave up and the basement flooded. Yesterday we had an inch of snow and the low last night was 15 F (-10 C).

There are two seasons here: summer and winter. In between each are a week or two of mild temps.

I live in Oklahoma so I know exactly what you mean. It doesn't get quite so cold here and is not quite so flat. The old saying is if you don't like the weather in Oklahoma, wait a while.
