I moved to Oklahoma from Minnesota in 1998.  I moved here to get away from the snow and the mosquitoes.  Who knew that I would move here during one of the hottest summers on record.  Well, 2011 looks to beat that record.  We have had little to no rainfall this summer and things are starting to dry up and crack (and I'm not talking about the ground).  So, I went back to my computer last night and pulled up the pictures from the last ice storm we had.  Honestly, looking at the pictures made me cool off and appreciate the warm sun.  We were without power for over 14 days at the Mace Place.  Do you remember?


And for good measure how about that barn that keeps blowing over?
