1st Day of Winter 2007
How's this weekend and the first day of Winter, weatherwise, turning out for your Christmas traveling in your neck of the woods? Have you spotted any great Christmas decorations this week? Any gigantic snow drifts?
We heard that Clayton, New Mexico woke up to eight foot drifts this Saturday morning. NOW... that is windy, blowing snow! It's probably headed towards the "No Mans Land," Northwest Oklahoma and Western Kansas.
As to last week's rain, snow in Northwest Oklahoma... We hear from friends back there that Fairvalley, Oklahoma received 2-inches of rain last week, and we know how much that area of Northwest Oklahoma needed the moisture for its pastures and crops. What a great surprise and early christmas present for northwest Oklahoma.
Just heard in from our oldest son, Michael, who was taking the Southern route from Shreveport, Louisiana through Dallas and over towards Sweetwater, Texas last night as he continues his trek towards Southwest Colorado. This morning he headed up towards Hobbs, New Mexico, just east of there, the temp this Saturday morning was 33 degrees and the wind was blowing dust -- helping with the attack of the killer tumbleweeds.

Comments: We talked to some people in Northwest Oklahoma and Kansas to find out that Saturday's weather brought whiteout conditions around Woods & Woodward county areas with Hwy412 being shutdown due to a 20 car pileup around the Mooreland, OK area.
Sounda like Kansas and Alva both got around 6 inches of that blowing snow Saturday. It's sunny here in soutwest Colorado, but chilly temps. ~NW Okie 2007-12-23 13:33:04
