I think I can speak for everyone when I say Iâ€™m sick and tired of the cold weather.
The spring sports season was supposed to be under way by now, but I canâ€™t help but feel like winter just wonâ€™t end.
If there was any good to come out of the recent poor weather conditions, I may have found it.
I met a friend in Kansas City on Monday to attend a Royals game â€” my second of the season. The plan was to return to Minnesota and work on Tuesday.
But lucky for me â€” and unlucky for area teams â€” the weather didnâ€™t allow any events to be played.
So at the last minute, my friend and I decided to make another day of it.
We quickly found tickets for Tuesdayâ€™s game, and spent the day seeing the sights in Kansas City.
It turned out to be a thrilling 5-4 victory for the home team, despite a game-time temperature of 45 degrees. Of the three games Iâ€™ve seen in KC, it was the first win. Another positive of the trip.
And while Iâ€™m OK with the weather allowing me one more day to get away, Iâ€™m ready for the nice weather.
Iâ€™m ready to start watching high school and college sporting events here.
And even though the drive to KC isnâ€™t bad â€” thanks to interstate â€” watching games in southwest Minnesota is a whole lot closer.
