Have a question....I am registered with KCBS and login to the website enter my team info under the BBQ Teams tab, then do a search for it on the list and it does not show up....any ideas?

They may have to approve your initial team profile. I wouldn't expect anything to happen today, KC is getting slammed - even federal offices have been closed. We're expecting from 5" (north west) to 25" (south east) by the time the snow stops coming down.

KCBS posted on Facebook that they closed the office today due to weather.

That is a real shame. I almost got a sunburn at lunch today down here. Be safe fellas.

I say go practice, might be snowing at the comp in March and you will be ready for it.

@ Smokin' Hicks: Right there with you! We didn't get as much ice as you, but I can't open any doors because the snow has drifted them shut. Snow is blowing so hard I can't see my neighbor's house across the street. We've probably had a couple feet of snow with 3'+ drifts. Record snow, I think, for this area.

Luckily I filled the grill last Saturday while the weather was decent!
