Oklahomans are obsessed with the weather – it’s probably a feature of living in Tornado Alley. They preempt prime time TV for weather. And, of course, big weather events need big names. Hence “Ice Storm 2007”. Unfortunately, we already had one of those. Schools were shut down for a week after an ice storm in January. So the name’s a bit misleading.
Anyway, we’re ice covered, and it keeps raining. Schools and the university are shut down for the day – first day of finals week for the university. It’s going to be fun to reschedule the exams. I just hope things have cleared up enough by tomorrow that I don’t have to worry about things like that.
