Let it snow ... NO!

This is what we woke up to today. It started snowing Thursday afternoon and continued through most of Friday. Throw in a little sleet and frozen rain and you get a winter wonderland. Yeah right! Some places around here received 10 inches of snow. I don't think we got as much at our house, but we got enough to make getting down and out of our driveway a chore. And, until the highway department gets to working on the roads, travel is pretty rough. It's slow going.

As bad as it was near us, in southern Oklahoma they got it worse. They got a lot more freezing rain than we did, which coupled with strong winds, means power lines came down. The last figure I saw was 179,000 people without electricity. We went through that in 2002, when we were without power for 13 days following a bad ice storm. Ahhh, the joys of living in the country.

Well, this too shall pass. We will make it and maybe even have a little fun doing it.
