Even as states throughout the nation contend with early spring snow storms, residents of the Kansas City, Missouri area know that spring weather is right around the corner. For many, the warmer temperatures and dry roads mean only one thing-it's time to get the motorcycle out. While bikers may be prepared for it, many drivers of cars likely are not.
Last month it would have been difficult for anyone in the Kansas City area to avoid coverage of the explosion that tore through a downtown restaurant, taking the life of one person and injuring a total of 15 others. The explosion, which occurred at JJ's Restaurant, located in shopping area County Club Plaza, led to a big fire and confusion as fire fighters worked to find victims and put the flames out.
