The entire state of Oklahoma has been under a state of emergency since last night because of extreme winter weather. We have had freezing rain and sleet since early this morning and beginning just before noon, heavy snow. It is about 6 inches of snow on top of a layer of ice in my neighborhood and no sign of letting up. Everything is shut down. We had tickets for a play last night that was canceled and rescheduled for Saturday - "maybe". School was canceled, businesses closed early, the airport is closed, nothing is open but the police and fire stations and of course, the Walmart. I am curious to see how much snow we will get overnight. It could set a record. I realize that people in more snowy northern climes may laugh, but this is a lot of snow for us.
