It could have been a Christmas Eve disaster.
But thanks to two guys from the Koch Industries security team....I got home safely...just a bit late.
After the 10pm newscast December 24, I discovered a very flat tire on my car.
Of course, I discovered it AFTER driving east on 37th Street, finally grinding to a halt in front of the Koch building.
If you remember that night, it was very cold and windy.
Despite living through more than 50 Kansas winters, I hadn't bothered to put gloves in my car.
Which made changing the tire a near impossibility, as my bare hands quickly turned to numb pieces of ice.
Fortunately, I was rescued by Steve Nelson and Joseph Botka.
Both work on Koch's security team, and despite wanting to get home themselves, they graciously make the tire switch, as I stood by whimpering about my frozen hands.
Without Steve and Joseph, I might STILL be standing beside my useless car.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, guys...and thanks.
