The Snow Storm that Wasn't.

So again, in Oklahoma, the local news stations created the usual frenzy that usually comes with the impending huge weather event.

Depending on which TV station you were watching, anywhere from three to six inches of snow was expected here in central Oklahoma. So what happened? The school and business closing for OKC started on Thursday. Businesses closed early on Friday, my husband's closed at three. People made frantic trips to the grocery store, like six inches would keep us unable to do any shopping for days and days.

And what happened? Nothing. Well almost nothing. We got quite a bit of rain on Friday, and it was pretty cold for the end of March but the huge snow storm? Didn't happen. When I woke up on Saturday and looked out the window the grass was dusted with snow, but it was gone after a few hours. Saturday morning brought a few flurries, but again, no real accumulations.

My kids had been looking forward to possibly sledding. But I guess we'll have to wait until next winter for that.
