Getting the heck out of Dodge (City)

My time in Dodge CIty is about to end. I will have to check out by noon and get on the road back to Russell.

The weather is going to turn very nasty tonight. A powerful cold front will sweep through and drop the temperatures below freezing, and the mercury will struggle to get above the freezing mark the rest of the week. No significant snow is forecast, thankfully, but I am dreading Friday’s football game at Oakley. It will be bitterly cold, and if the wind is blowing, heaven help me.

Coincidentally, the coldest football game I’ve ever covered in Kansas was also on Nov. 14. It was Ellis at Meade in 2008, and as I recall, the temperatures were in the mid-20s with a wind chill near 10. All I wanted to do was survive and get out of there. Meade won 20-8.

I was back in Meade the next Friday when the Buffaloes hosted Smith Center. The Redmen won that won 60-14 en route to their fifth consecutive Class 2-1A state championship.

I probably won’t venture far from home until Friday. I don’t have that much work to do this week, but I have to get it done. But I will have a lot of time to catch up on sleep.

Time to shut down the computer and get ready to go. Next post will be from the basement at 1224 North Brooks.
