Glad i left the Nichols Hills area just before 5 and headed home. It was drizzling and wilshire and i35 to the turner turnpike were still pretty good then. i44 east was dry at that time.
Bad deal for a lot of people though.

We were going to Amarillo to hunt this weekend and canceled a few days ago because it's going to be 5 degrees with a 25+ mph wind Saturday.

Thanks for the OK weather update. We were headed for OKC today, but we are now going through Arkansas to Texas.

Yeah the best laugh I had in a while was when MA and NH guys were cranking their trucks at a safety meeting. Tell we're telling of -40 but 25 with humidity canceled the meeting about halfway through.

This was October 18 a couple years back. It's was spitting snow outside of colebrook NH. Not sure if we had long johns on but in the other pictures just a hoodie. Till the north gets in the teens I would take it over the cold in the south. Just me.
