Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

How A Major Weather Emergency Effected Kansas City

Major Weather Emergency Effected Kansas CitySummary: breaks down the recent storms in KC and how it is effecting life there.

Winter is never a predictable season in the Midwest. Prairie winds can bring storms out of nowhere, turning a clear, cold day into a blizzard rapidly. Heavy snows can bring down power lines, close roads, keep people stuck inside and in some cases even turn lethal. All of these conditions are cranked up to 10 around Kansas City this year, with record snowfall hitting on a blitzkrieg basis with little time for residents to recover between storms. It's affecting individuals, businesses, and colleges in Kansas City and doesn't show any signs of stopping.

Of course, Kansas Citians are used to winter weather. People in and around the city have been braving serious winters for as long as they've been there, and all locals grew up learning how to dig out a car, how to keep a driveway ice-free and when to call it quits and stay indoors with hot coffee. But this year is worse: over 8 inches just dropped on KC, only days after getting another foot of snow and the mayor has declared the city to be in a state of emergency.

So what does this mean? Travelers were among those hardest hit. As winter storms blanketed the country, more than 1900 flights were canceled including 117 at Kansas City. Similar cancellations at other Midwest airports meant that even rerouting flights was not always possible.

However, local residents are shouldering the brunt of the fallout. The massive storm completely shut down the city, and as many as 80,000homes and businesses went without power for a day or more. While many winter storms are merely annoyances, a lack of power can be dangerous when heaters go out – and the roads get dangerous too. There have been two confirmed deaths in the region, one from a flipped SUV and the other from a roof that collapsed under the weight of snow.

The effects are also wide ranging, affecting commutes and making the city bog down even for the few people who were brave enough to try to get to work. Between unreliable power and lack of staff, many businesses remain closed, school is canceled and even colleges in Kansas Cityare canceling classes.

Still, residents are staying hopeful. While it's a remarkably severe year, Kansas Citians have weathered many blizzards in the past, and March is just around the corner promising warmer weather and much-awaited relief. If you're trapped indoors and catching a little bit of cabin fever, just close your eyes and think of springtime.
