Watch the Best School Closing Announcement Ever [VIDEO]

It's that time of year: terrible winter weather means plenty of school closings. Here at the radio station, it's our job to relay those school closings to you. It's important, but I'll be honest, it gets a little boring listing off closing after closing every few minutes, day after day.

Guys, I'm sure you've heard us talking about the Tropical Nights: Boots in the Sand event. This is huge. It's a thing where you can get away from it all in the sunnier, warmer climes of Riviera Maya.

I'm sadly one of the jerks who can't go. But here's the thing: I'm mad about it. I'm hoppin' mad. I'm madder than a wet hen. Or, maybe just really, really jealous of those of you who can or could go. Here's five reasons why I hate everything and pine for the Riviera Maya.

UPDATE: Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Pettis County This Weekend

Update: Sunday, Jan. 5 10:00 am

The National Weather Service and the Sedalia/Pettis County Emergency Management Agency is keeping up with the latest weather and the Winter Weather Advisory continues until noon today (Jan. 5), but they have also issued a Wind Chill Warning from 6 pm (Jan. 5) until Noon on Monday (Jan. 6).

“Temperatures will top out around 12 or so above zero and will start to fall tonight until hitting a low around 6 am Monday of about -10 below zero (that's actual) in the meantime winds will pick up late tonight to around 15 -18 MPH and gusts up to 25 MPH. This will drop our wind chill to a "life-threatening" -30 below zero,” said EMA Director David Clippert. “Frostbite can occur to exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes. I would imagine that unless you are from the northern part of the US or Alaska, most of us have never seen wind chills like this.”

UPDATE:  The national weather service in Kansas City/Pleasant Hill has issued a winter weather advisory for snow, which is in effect from 3 p.m. this afternoon to 9 a.m. CST Sunday for portions of eastern Kansas and Western Missouri, including Pettis County.
