Admittedly not my best photography – these are cellphone photos (I sent my camera with Daughter Trinidad to Hawaii – she’s currently on a trip there with her high school marching band) – but I thought I would share the difference here between yesterday afternoon and pre-dawn today.
This morning – by daybreak there was 4 inches of snow on the ground
Poor Trin – she’s been wishing for snow for weeks!
Tonight – central Oklahoma, where I live, is under a winter storm warning. For days we have been urged to prepare for ice followed by snow and to expect to be stuck for 2-3 days.
You can see that lower level winds were northerly while upper level winds were westerly – and whatever direction the winds were blowing they reminded me of those famous lyrics “O!!!klahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains! “
It’s not officially winter yet, but winter obviously pays no mind to the calendar. It’s supposed to warm up enough today to melt the ice – but the weather report says to expect 2-3 inches of snow tomorrow. Awesome!
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
