It's Kansas! In the span of one week, you could experience all four seasons! Pretty much every extreme weather condition can be experienced in Kansas at one time or another! Well, except for hurricanes. Power outages are a given! When it rains, the power can go out! When those good ol Kansas winds blow, the power can go out! Snow or ice? Better have a flashlight handy in case the power goes out! We went without power for 5 days after the 1999 tornado, 4 days in the January Ice Storm of 2005 (I believe?) and most recently we had hurricane strength straight=line winds knock our power out for three days. We consider ourselves blessed! There are those who have been without power for weeks!

The job market here SUCKS! At one time, Wichita was known as the Air Capital of the World! True story! We even have the sign to prove it! (Had? Not sure if the sign is still up...) However, all that changed when Cessna laid off thousands of it's workers, Spirit bought out Boeing and now is being rumored to be changing hands again. Boeing and Spirit have both been laying people off. Boeing, who has long been Wichita's single largest employer, is now looking to relocate and close it's Wichita doors for good. Other aircraft plants have changed leadership and had lay-offs. My husband was personally laid off from aircraft three times in ten years! Many people have to look for other ways to supplement their incomes.
Tourism? In Wichita, KS? Surely you jest! One of the biggest local events is the Kansas State Fair; which isn't even in Wichita! It's in Hutch! Also there are now more big name concerts are our new arena, Intrust Bank Arena. There's the Midwest Wine Fest, the Gun Show, the Car Show, the annual Sewer (OOPS! I mean RIVER!) Fest, the Native American Indian Center, which hosts pow-wows.....nothing really spectacular.
