The dogs and I took a stroll on the prairie today to see how things were looking after a night of thundersleet. If you, like us, have never experienced thundersleet, you may be interested to know it does in fact involve lightning and thunder, but that’s not all. Add the sound of pebbles hitting the house at 2 a.m., and you, dear readers, will have been treated to thundersleet.
If a full night of sleet, thunder and lightning flashes wasn’t enough, the morning saw fat juicy snowflakes falling from the heavens. Schools were closed, businesses opened late and nearly everyone just stayed home. Yes, yes, I realize it’s February — we should expect this type of weather. But this is Oklahoma! We are not snow-prepared or ice-hardened like our more nothern brethren. It’s okay, we need the moisture. Maybe this will chip away at the drought.
