    What I did with a day off 'cause the office closed.

    Because it's doing this outside pretty much everything in OKC is closed. Over an inch of freezing rain, 210,000 customers without electricity. We're lucky though, we live in an area where all the utilities are underground and the ice doesn't mess with our power.

    Our patio cover.


    One of our trees.


    One of our bushes.


    Our yard.



    So I took the opportunity to make a nice, organized bike and bike stuff storage/work area.

    You really screwed up on that "build your own bike kit". Pedals are in teh wrong place, the seat is too low, bars are too high. Geez

    Wow, soonerbent, that's what our winter weather looks like, when it comes. I'd much prefer snow, because around here, it'd only be a day or so before it'd be gone. And one could actually drive in it. Can't drive on a sheet of ice.

    I still haven't heard back from my step-son and his family in Tulsa. Hope they're ok....

    I'd rather have snow too. This morning I did have to get out in it to take the wife to work. There's a hill by our house that you either have to make it up or go miles out of the way to avoid. There was a 4-wheel drive SUV pulling those who couldn't climb it up the hill. I was one of the unlucky saps!

    This system seems to have been following I-44 right up towards Tulsa so I bet it's pretty bad up there too.

    Hope it gets better out there quickly. I still haven't heard anything from Tulsa.

    It's supposed to slow down tonight. And it's supposed to be above freezing statewide tomorow so things should improve quickly. Lot's of overhead power and phone lines down though. That will take a while to repair.
