I just think that no matter what safety first. Not only are the roads hazardous but we have children who walk and teenagers who drive. The elements of the weather are not good for anyone right now.

Just want to give a shout-out to my mail person today. I can't imagine what it would be like to walk all the distance they do in this weather, going up to every house & apartment building. So THANK YOU!!!

If the city transit can't run neither can school buses they are probably having "technical difficulties again!"

We have Deffenbaugh for recycling and so far love the service! They have not missed any pick ups at all. If we could use them for trash pick up, I might switch if it is cheaper. Nothing against our trash guys tho; they are always good to me. May be something to do with me baking cookies for them....hehehe

I just got home from working in Topeka(drive a grand-prix). I-70 is ok, at least 1 lane. The worst is once you get into Lawrence as Clinton Parkway is bad. Once I hit Kasold I finally saw the plows but as soon as they went past, it drifted all over again. I agree fearsadness14, I lived in Minnesota/ND until this past May so knowing how to drive in this has helped.

Can anyone comment as to the condition of the main roads. I have only seen four wheel drive vehicles motoring my street, and very few at that.

gswtotheheart- not only are the city crews out plowing , but so are others that do private drives

our city workers are great and regardless of what contract the commissioners would come up with for outside trash service we would still get screwed. it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Did it occur to anyone that the reason defenbaugh called off recycling the other week was because they keep their trucks in kc and not in lawrence? If they got the lawrence trash contract it seems reasonable to assume they'd keep trucks here. It could even be written into the contract that services had to happen regardless of weather. Our city has shown itself incapible of adequately managing the expenses of trash collecting. All of the objections to a private contractor are the same restrictions now being suggested to bring the trash service back into the black.
