While we're all looking forward to Thanksgiving and spending some time with family and friends, not to mention eating. It's looking like Mother Nature is going to throw an icy wrench into everyone's plans for Turkey Day. They're predicting freezing temps, snow, and ice!
If you haven't heard the news it's looking like winter will be coming early for Oklahoma this year according to the Farmer's Almanac. Now would be the time to get prepared and make sure you have everything you'll need to brave the cold.
Well, here we are day three of Mother Nature's frozen wonderland. It's been a crazy couple of days in Lawton, Fort Sill and it's not over yet! Things are slowly but surely starting to melt off, but we've got a ways to go before the roads are clear.
We'd like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of our City f Lawton workers and street crews for everything they've done for us over the past couple of days. They've been out night and day in all this madness spreading salt and sand to help improve the road conditions in Lawton, Fort Sill.
Will we ever see an end to Winter and all the snow and ice in Oklahoma? Mother Nature sure has been moody lately, not to mention unpredictable. We're experiencing yet another late February ice storm in the Sooner State, it's starting to become a habit.
While the snow and ice may not be ideal when it comes to work and travel, it's the perfect conditions for some homemade snow ice cream! Looks like most of S.W. Oklahoma will be stuck at home over the next couple of days as Mother Nature continues her frozen tantrum and Winter storms across the Sooner state.
Remember last February? Well, it's looking like Mother Nature will be giving us a repeat performance of last year's winter storm. The forecast right now is calling for extremely low temperatures overnight, rain tomorrow with the possibility of ice and sleet. Then on Thursday, there's a 50% chance of snow. Oh boy, here we go!
As rapidly as things can change outdoors you need to be prepared when Mother Nature starts PMSing. That's means running to the store ASAP and getting the BREAD & MILK! It's not an option, it's a must-do, must-have, or else kinda thing.
Now that things are starting to warm up just a little outside, it's the perfect time to build a snowman, or two. The snow we saw over the past several days has been very dry and powdery, especially with the below zero temperatures. It's starting to melt some and that makes for prefect packing for snowballs and snowman building. You need the snow to be a little wet so you can get it to stick and shape. Now's the time to get out there and build the perfect snowman before it all melts away.
I'm sure by now you've done this, if not it's not too late. When was the last time you made a snow cone using real snow? If it's been awhile, or if you've never done it, here's a quick and easy recipe for you. Just hit play on the video and in no time you'll be enjoying a frosty, frozen, flavorful treat. It's one of the easiest DIY treats around and the flavors and possibilities are nearly endless. We just got more snow yesterday evening so it's fresh and ready to be scooped up and used.
