Tulsa Blizzard of 2011 - More Snow!

Just when we thought we had seen the end of the white fluffy stuff it started up again and snowed another 3 1/2 inches.  More is forecasted over the weekend.  Sue and her daughter Jennifer braved a trip to the Walmart to see a crowd of people picking over mostly empty shelves.   The wholesalers who supply the stores with goods are not able to negotiate the icy roads either.  Oh well,  we have a good supply of dried beans and rice, we will not starve.  Beans, rice and cornbread is not a hardship.

Our birdbath looks like a giant snowcone.  I need to ask Willy to knock the snow out of it and fill it with hot water.  The birds need water as well as food.  We did get some seed in the feeders and had lots of customers.   Sue got a 25 pound sack of sunflower seeds so they will appreciate that. 

I took a quick video clip of the snow coming down in big clumps.  How is the weather where you are?  If it is sunny and warm I'm not sure I want to hear about it.  Just joking of course.

Your patio umbrella sparkles amid all that white.

Hi Bill. Your birdbath really does look like a snow cone! And I live in Arizona and just to let you know, we have had record cold here too and have had two deep freezes this year that now threaten our peach, apricot and apple orchards. Its cold right now. ;o)
Love your photos!

Your snow brings back memories. England is now experiencing strong winds with the resultant fallen trees and bridges closed to high-sided vehicles.

It's sunny and warm, here, Bill! :-D And from here, that snow sure looks pretty. Having dealt with Wal*Mart, those poor suppliers will probably end up paying heavy penalties despite Mother Nature being the cause of the delayed deliveries.

I am just east of you in Tulsa and it is pretty much the same here. I got outside and saw the front of my house for the first time since Monday. Also got a newspaper and mail for the first time since then. My neighbor got the snow off my driveway on Wednesday and with the sun today it is completely clear. One of the advantages of facing south.

We had mail yesterday and today. No trash service yet. East 57th Street is passable but there's a little slope going down to Memorial and that is treacherous ... slippy slide all the way.

Wow! It reminds me winter of 07 when we had so much snow in Ottawa. I didn't know you could get so much of it!
