It is, after all, December

TLO’s Lucas reports, and on the basis of my 40-plus years of residency I must agree, that it’s Snowpocalypse Now, unless it’s something worse:

Weather panic is not a unique situation in Oklahoma. If a week goes by where the temperatures don’t shift by twenty degrees, the wind doesn’t fluctuate, or allergens aren’t popping, there must be something wrong.

Now that winter has finally arrived, we get to enjoy melodramatic forecasts from local meteorologists. As soon as the temperatures drop and precipitation looks like it will rear its ugly head, get ready for all the Oklahoma weatherpeople to unveil colorful charts and graphs that display the incoming winter hellscape.

I did what I could to forestall the inevitable: I took a couple of days off.

    Sending up prayers for no power outages or downed tree limbs. (I figure you can cope with the rest by staying home)

    That storm is going to hit you and North Carolina, and miss upstate NY. Am I enjoying

    You’d be perfectly justified in being happy to be out of the path of the storm.
