Weather In Oklahoma...
We are sure that you have heard that, "If you don't like the weather in Oklahoma, wait three days. It will change." AND... It's that time of year that Tornado & Storm watchers can be seen driving our roads chasing storm clouds. We didn't get the hail stones that dumped over 6 inches of hail in the OKC area, but did get some thunder, lightning, high winds, and rain... of course. By Thursday the temps had dropped to the mid-50s and more rain came in Friday all day... dumping over 2 inches of rain in some places. Some of you former Alva, NW Oklahomans might remember how the rain drains down from the Castle on the Hill towards the corner of fourth street & Flynn Avenue... with streaming aftermaths reaching almost to the curb of the downtown streets. I don't believe they got that deep, but their was lots of it this Friday. The Iris, trees, grass, weeds and farmers thank-you, Mother Nature! BUT... don't forget the sunshine, too!
What about those dusts storms in Milan, New Mexico? So... Where is Milan, New Mexico? How about that 1-2 feet of snow that fell in the eastern parts of Colorado leaving blizzard conditions from Denver to LaJunta all the way down to I25 and Raton, New Mexico? I hear they closed Interstate 25 near Raton, New Mexico at the Colorado border because of the snow. The Panhandle of Oklahoma (No Mans Land) even got some of that snow. Is there anyone out there besides me and Duchess that think this is a very strange, cool, warm, wet Spring? We need the moisture, though! So I "ain't complainin' much!" Just grateful for what we have around here! Anyway... Wait three days. The weather will change!
