Jayne I got on weatherbug's radar a few minutes ago and checked out your area of Oklahoma and saw the weather you are getting.

I believe the weatherman said Oklahoma City is looking at a foot of snow.


RE: this just doesnt happen in Oklahoma - jayne - 12-24-2009

it isnt snowing very much right now but later the winds are supposed to be bad...That worries me as the ground is saturated with all the rain this year and I am worried about our big trees......

Thanks for the information Bad Boy.

In severe wether much of what one follows is audio, being hearing impaired I depend on visual information.

Jayne, I hope none of yours got caught up in that 40 car pile up on I-40. I know what you mean "It just doesn't happen in Oklahoma". We went from the 70's to the 30's for a high over night. The wind blew so hard that it ripped off some of the panels that covered the back deck. All I can say is that I will be staying inside for a few days.

Merry Christmas, and try and stay warm.

Take Care
