Snowpocalypse 2011

Snow, snow, snow- like so many people in the country over the past week- we have been eating, breathing, and hating SNOW!  Here in Oklahoma, we are enjoying our first day above freezing (and without SNOW in a solid week). I know that may not sound like much to those of you up north, but for down here in the South– well let’s just say, we shut down everything if there is any amount of frozen precipitation.

Over the course of this massive blizzard, I have gotten stuck three times; twice I managed to get myself out, but last night was really bad- first off, it was snowing big puffy flakes when I left the house (dumb). Secondly, it was dark when I left the house (really, really dumb). Thirdly I decided to take a back road to Walmart to “avoid traffic” (so dumb it isn’t even worth mentioning). About 45 seconds out of my driveway, I got stuck in snow tall enough to put my Challenger at a complete stand still– 1 jeep, 1 really big truck, and 30 minutes later I was free and hightailing it back to my house repeating all the way home “Stupid, stupid, stupid!”

I didn’t take a lot of pics, but here are just a few from this stint of the winter not-so-wonderland. Hope you’ve been keeping warm!

  1. Woo hoo! Today is the first day I have felt stir crazy from being inside the past five days. Is it a coincidence that I have simultaneously started planning a trip to Egypt?
