Seven Inches of Snow Blankets Johnson County in Latest Storm

Another major snowstorm blanketed the Johnson County area with an estimated seven inches of snow when a cold front blew in towards the northerly direction Tuesday afternoon through the early morning hours of Wednesday, January 23. At the same time, a low pressure front developed in eastern Kansas. Prior to the snow, freezing drizzle and quickly falling temperatures created about a 10th of an inch of ice on the streets and sidewalks in the area.

“I couldn’t believe how much snow we got,” said Mark McDonald who was only expecting to see one to two inches of snow. The wind was a factor in the late afternoon on Tuesday, January 22. He bucked snow drifts while driving his pickup from his rural residence to the Tecumseh community on Wednesday morning, January 23.

Article Image Alt Text

This is the second year that Johnson County Central FFA Chapter has raised farm animals and donated to the local food banks. The 2017-18 school year the Chapter raised hogs from 40 pounds until market weight (275pounds), paid for them to be butchered and donated the meat to local food banks for food insecure families in the community. This year the chapter has built a chicken coop from scratch and are raising hens for egg production. The eggs are donated to the local food bank as well. The chapter is raising 33 hens and currently collecting on average 30 eggs a day. When we first started the project at the end of November, the hens were molting and not producing well at all. We are nearly at full laying capacity now.
