I remember when we were stationed at Fort Riley, KS during the 70s the weather report said it was warmer in Alaska that winter then it was in Kansas. Also I told my husband I wouldn’t mind living there, because I had heard from friends how beautiful it is. He didn’t want to hear about it
I remember Fort Riley from when I was there in the ‘90’s. They are not fond memories either. I recall it being incredibly cold and the wind whipping with nothing to stop it. When I left I swore I would never set foot in Kansas again. To this day I haven’t!
