My husbands family ran a night club west of Oklahoma City, for many years in the 70's. It was a very fun but rough after hours place conveniently located right on the county line (nice loophole). The building literally split counties and was on a state highway and adjacent to a motel. In it's former glory days, it was a sort of country club for many Western actors, musicians and Wild West Show retirees. Their names were embossed in brass on oak leaves mounted to plaques on the wall. It told a thousand stories. There are many former and current stars embedded in Oklahoma.
It is not uncommon that you were treated like an old friend by the Oklahoma lady. For the most part, strangers are just friends we have not yet met. I live in Oklahoma City, and after the bombing in 1995, I remembered why my family traveled all over the US ( Dad was a civil engineer, who supervised large construction projects) but always found their way home. Many New Yorkers made the comment that after seeing the news coverage in 1995, they were better prepared to deal with the 9-11 destruction, by pulling together, and talking it through. Firefighters told them stories of how they saw so much good that seemed to be pulled in to the vacuum after the horror here, and they found it inspiring.
That Norman storm center specializes in Wind shear and Tornado detection. They have helped to develop much of the life saving technology in use now, so we are proud and relieved to have the new NWC facility there.
I want to send this link, in the event it is no longer linked to the front page, when you follow the above link. At least he is listening, unlike the last administration.
Our television meteorologist are probably better equipped and educated than any in the world, and in spite of the fact that I love to poke fun at them in my posts, they do a great job at keeping us safe, even in the rain wrapped early fast acting tornados like the ones this week. Nightime storms are really bad, especially when they plow through trailer parks, like in Lone Grove. The Oklahoma City tornados were several miles north of my home near downtown.
My family and I are safe, high and dry. We had no yellow snow, and the rain was cool, not warm!
Never go faster than your guardian angel can fly!
Be Patient And Tough, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You
I get by with a lotta help from my friends!
Crohn's DG 2003 , symptoms included terrible joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reactive Arthritis-explains sooo much.
Followed SCD Strictly 2003-06, then modified by adding new things 10-12 days apart to avoid delayed reactions in the form of arthritis symptoms. Scope on 2-5-09 was great! Doc says no symptoms,No scope for 10 years!!!
