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.
