Coffeyville, Kansas

I know this is titled as Coffeyville, but I have to say something about the steep road US 65 from Springfield, MO to Branson! Does anyone know what the grade is on this road? Can you tell from the photo how steep it is?

That last quarter mile up to the top of the hill really made the truck slow down.
OK, now onto Coffeyville. It is a nice town and will be very liveable for the next three months while we work for

We went to the local public library first, naturally, and I was happy to see it is very up-to-date and well used. When you walk into the building the adult library entrance is to your left and to the right is the children's library entrance. That is really nice to keep them separate.
Inside the adult side there is a separate section for teens with mod colors and "with it" furniture. It is separated from the main library by rolling fabric sectional walls. They have posters on the wall and a couch for chilling and conversations.
We drove to Independence (20 miles north) yesterday for our meeting with Express Pro, the temp agency hiring for Amazon. It was a fast, efficient process. On the way we saw the building. OMG!!!! It went on and on and on. It is all one story but very, very big. I heard tell that it is a million square feet and you could fit 4-5 Super Walmarts inside!!! We won't know till the company hot dog cookout on Saturday to find out what our jobs will be and what schedule we will have = days or nights.
I think I want to work nights which is 5:30 pm to 3:30 am. Then you could go to sleep for six hours and wake up to daylight and can do some things during the day. If you work days from 6:30 am to 4:30 pm you will never see daylight during winter.
Well, more in the days to come. I'll take photos of the campground and sites around town to post.
Remember - you are loved!!!
