Yep the next blizzard has started in Okieland, this was the view from my office at 2:30pm. It's not even showing as having reached us on the radar yet, so this was ahead of the actual storm front, which is really due to hit hard overnight.
We missed the brunt of last weeks storm, but this time the whole of Okieland has a big old bullseye over it, including us in the NW corner. So if you're elsewhere in Okieland, it's here and headed your way!
We let the school buses leave at 1:30pm and my boss told me to leave at 2:45pm as I live in the next town and had to drive 7 miles. The drive home was okay, just blowing snow across the road and poor visibility but I made it safely.
Now I am tucked up 'snug as a bug in a rug' at home, with plenty of supplies and waiting on the 'snow day' call from work if the weather goes as forecast. We are due to get anything from 4-12 inches dependant on who you believe, with 2-3ft drifts due to high winds. It is bitter cold out there at just 8F (-13C) with wind chills you don't even want to know about!
Okies please stay indoors warm and safe, it's going to get real nasty out there!
