2009 Oklahoma End of Year Snow
Roy in Perry says December 31, 2009, "This past week, our blizzard dumped more snow on Oklahoma City than ever before. Today they said it was only twelve and a half inches instead of the 13 they had claimed earlier, but our wind was so strong at the same time that I thought I was going to lose one of the massive wooden gates I have at the shop. Let's see if I can attach a couple of older pictures to this piece.
There are two large gates behind that sign (that's painted on four sheets of 4'x8' exterior 5/8:" plywood, and the gate farthest from the front door of the shop was leaning towards the street at a very steep angle because of the force of the north wind that day. Today, most of the snow is gone and it was calm so I added another chain to those gates to hold them closer at the top.
"I'm watching "The Piano Hour" on one of our PBS stations and they just played "Basin Street Blues" and are now showing older scenes of New Orleans and playing various New Orleans jazz tunes. It's fantastic!"
