The thunder woke me up.
Roads in Western Oklahoma have an inch or so of wet, slicky ice. We’ve got power outages, freezing rain and sleet. The leading edge of this is thunder-boomers with hail, winds, driving rain, and of course (this is Oklahoma) the threat of tornadoes.
Yesterday and the day before I ran the air conditioner.
Now, we’ve got snonadoes.
This isn’t all that unusual around here. It doesn’t happen every day. But it does happen. The basic rule is that water coming down from the skies is always accompanied by at least the threat of tornadoes. You can’t have a good cry in Oklahoma without spinning up a twister.
I’ve turned off my computer, flipped the air conditioner over to heater and checked the weather reports. Now, I’m going back to bed. I imagine that by the time I get up, it will be all better. If it’s not, I may have to mush to work.
