We are heading down tomorrow as soon as we pick the kids up from school at 1 pm.  Hopefully the impending weather will keep the crowds down!

Lol!  We are just going down for Friday afternoon/evening.  We are close enough to not have to worry about getting a room, etc.  I was supposed to head to kc on Saturday to watch my Bearcats play in the d2 championship game.  We decided the weather is just going to be too awful to do that.

Tonight was great!  We thought we were going to have to cancel our trip due to road conditions but modot did their job and got everything clear down here.  We walked on to all 7 things we rode.  We didn't get to see Santa.  The line was a bit crazy but we did see Rudolph.  Most roller coasters were shut down because the temp never made it to 40.  We were there about 4 hours.  The square for the parade and the mass exodus were nuts.  But they did a really good job with crowd control and I didn't hear anyone complain!

Sundays high is going to be around 22.  So of course that's the day my wife planned to go with our friends who have 6 little ones (along with our 4)  Should be interesting.

That's a lot of cold kids!  Invest in heat packs and put them in every pocket, tuck them in boots, and the rim of stocking hats. Makes a huge difference!  Have fun!

Happy you were able to make it.  We had no choice to cancel - we are iced in and still going strong.

Hoping to get out there at least one day this week if all goes well and the weather cooperates.  We have tickets for the Hughes Brothers we have to use this next week as well before they expire.  Not sure what day for either though.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Park closed early today due to weather.  We'll see if it opens tomorrow or not. 
Six Flags didn't bother opening this weekend due to weather.
