I try to not gripe too badly about weather. I mean, what can I do to change it, really??? But here's the low-down....I like it very mild. I don't enjoy tons of winter weather & I do not enjoy it being 112 with 765% humidity. Now don't think the only winter weather I've ever been exposed to is the winter weather Oklahoma has to offer. No, no, my friends. I spent two LOOOOONG winters in Minnesota. I have had my snot freeze coming out of my nose, I have seen spit freeze before it hits the ground. That crap just is not natural.
Anyhow, Oklahoma is having more than its normal share of Winter weather this year. I've always heard that the longer it's below freezing, the more nasty bugs & insects are killed off for the Summer months. Is there any truth to this? I don't know. And frankly, I don't feel like looking up that information. You see, my friends, we started with the Winter precipitation again yesterday. Ice storm, then snow. We (at my home) did not get as much ice as we anticipated, but more snow fell than we thought. I think we got something like 6-7 inches. No drifts this time. Just snow on top of ice. The trees are all weighted down. Poor trees.
Schools were all canceled. My daughter does not handle being cooped up very well. I do not handle being cooped up with her. I don't know what I'm going to do to get us through the rest of the weekend. Prayer- that's what I'm going to rely on I think. I'm going to pray that I'm not too mean, and she isn't too "cabin feverish".
