ICE STORM - OKC

Oklahoma is more than cowboys, native americans, covered wagons, football, and oil.  We have fast paced weather.  Everyone thinks of tornados.  But what people don't know is that Oklahoma has 2 seasons:  Wick Hot (the summer) and this other thing that is ever changing (the rest of the year).  It could be sunny and in the 70's one day, then in the teens the next with snow.  So basically I have my winter boots and sandals ready at any moment.

 

 

The storm started Sunday (the 9th).  The rain turned into freezing rain to ice to freezing rain to ice...

Immediately people began losing power when the ice started accumulating on the powerlines.  When the transformers blow, there's a bright blue/green flash.  Very cool looking.  Well until its close by and you lose power.  Monday night we lost our power.  We didn't get it back until Tuesday afternoon.  We were luckly.  some people will be without power for about a week.  There were about 400,000 people without power because of this storm. 

 

 

Here are some cool pictures that show a nicer side of a ice storm.  I didn't see any need to show pictures of trees fallen down and other destructive images.  Thats just not fun.  So I hope you enjoy these pictures of the beautiful ice.
