It was like deja vu

My pants are wet, my feet are cold, and there is slush everywhere. It was like deja vu.

I don't know what is up with the weather in Oklahoma this year, but it sure has been interesting. After we had our Christmas Eve blizzard, we were cursed blessed with another bout of ice and snow.


So what did I do? I stayed in all weekend. On Friday, I couldn't even get my car out of the parking lot. I was parked on pure ice and the thing was not in the mood to move. I had to call in sick, and I spent my day writing a paper. Fun right? Not so much.


I hope you all had a comfy and cozy weekend like I did. I was warm and basically did nothing. It was grand. I will say that I am very thankful that I was not one of the thousands of people that lost power. Ice is no joke, it destroyed a lot of things, but I can't help be see some of the beauty in it.


Here's a look at Oklahoma Ice Storm January 2010.

All the power outages, etc aren't fun to deal with, but I do have to say: ice storms are sort of beautiful!

i agree--the ice and snow are beautiful, but I would really not want to deal with that! i live in alabama, where it snows about once every year--and usually doesn't even stick!
