2019 Christmas announcement at 7 am on Thursday morning. Any insights on what we might find out?

Random Talk / Re: Snowpocalypse 2019

In our corner of Missouri West of Branson and SW of Springfield we got no snow at all, unless you count the few bits of grain that were on the car windows this morning.  We did however get well over 2 inches of rain.

I would have welcomed the snow.

The Carthage/Joplin area got lake effect snow last night off Stockton lake. Some are reporting up to an inch. Weíll see how much My area got when I leave to take the kids to school.

Looks like weíll get more snow this weekend perhaps. It will be 54 on Friday and the low Saturday night will be 5 degrees.

We were there for a few hours. Eventually the kids got tired of waiting in lines so we didnít even stay til dark. When we left at 4:30, there was still a huge line at the entrance gates and the traffic was worse than when we arrived at 12:30.

Just a heads up today wound up being surprisingly busy. Staff saying they never seen a Sunday this busy.  All lots are near full.

Friends posted a photo of the line they waited in for an hour and a half to get a parking spot. The park wasnít even open yet.

Stormdar says too early to get excited about it.  Storm just now starting to come ashore.

Oh I agree. But people need to be aware of the possibility. Letís face it.  3/4 of the people
In this country canít find themselves in a map so there is no way they can read a radar. There are a lot of people that will need to make a decision on whether or not to cancel their trip before they know exactly what this storm is going to produce, if anything.

Looks like the area is in for a major snowstorm this weekend. If you plan on being in Branson, make sure you keep an eye on the weather. I know many people have already cancelled their plans. If it comes like they say it will,  the 8-12 inches of snow will cripple i44 and the Branson area from Friday evening and all day Saturday.

Sunday, another poor number for the park..  Was the weather that bad down there..  I know it was BAD here,
30-40- mph winds
4 degree wind chill
blowing snow ALL day...

But in Branson?...  anyway only 5400 people.~, 

May have been a good day to be there and look it all over...

Well...the weather wasnít great. It wasnít too cold in Branson for most of the day, but once the temperature started to drop, it dropped 10-20 degrees in an hour and by dark they had snow flurries. The wind was horrific all day though. Gusts to 50 mph . It certainly shut the high flying rides Iíd think.

The weather wasnít perfect today but we went anyway. A high of 46 is a bit chilly for November 4th. Anyway...

Attendance was around 6000 at 6 pm. The city looks beautiful dressed in her holiday finery. Seriously, the attention to detail is astounding at times. We got there at rope drop. Walk on to thunderation and a 10 minute wait for time traveler.  Done. Off to the measuring station (move it to the top of the hill!!!!) and to do some expo rides. All walk on. Met Rudolph and clarice. Off to the outlaw run area. Again...all 3 rides walk on. Now we see powder keg is open. Get there as fast as possible. The ride is done twice. Iím attaching a photo of my daughter riding pk for the first time. She was screaming ďIím gonna die!Ē Over and over again before take off. We laughed so hard we were crying. However, she ended up loving it and she then rode every coaster in the park..all for the first time. The big kids split off for more coaster time and we took the littles to meet Santa. Then down to firemanís landing.  Again...the most time to wait was 1 round. Ate grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner. Then a buzz through midtown and stopping to watch the tree. Overall, it was a great day. I kind of dread our trip in 2 weeks...it will be on a Saturday.

@DianaGail,   why are the kids out.?   I think we have school everywhere up here..

Some school districts have gotten smart and realized the time change is hard on kids. So, to give them an extra day to get over it, many schools in the Joplin area will have inservice days on Monday.
