A huge snow storm has hit most of Oklahoma. During the night we could hear freezing sleet falling and then the snow hit around four this morning. It is suppose to snow all day . It snows every winter but not this much in Oklahoma. Ususally, we get three to four inches at a time when it does snow. Predictions with this storm is around 10 inches in Muskogee and more as you travel north. This storm is breaking all records around here. The wind is blowing at about 35 miles an hour so we have a lot of drifts piling up.
Snow drift on our front porch.
The birds are feeding at the birdfeeders in our backyard. These are the blackbirds that fly by the thousands over our house every morning. A few of them have stopped to feed before they fly on north to their destination. They will fly back this way on their way to roost somewhere south of us around five this evening. Hopefully, these blackbirds will fly away soon so the smaller birds can feed.
Yesterday when the news was all about the coming snow storm we rented three movies and went to the bookstore and grocery store. As long as we have electricity then I'll be happy. We'll have plenty to entertain ourselves. Being retired has it's perks. We don't have to worry about getting out in this and going to work. Hope the weather where you are is better than what we are experiencing.
