Weather Today

I don’t think I will ever get used to the weather in Oklahoma. Yesterday it was 74 degrees and today it is currently 16 degrees. First of all, 74 degrees in December is just wrong as far as I am concerned. Now I am not saying that I like it really cold, but 74 is just not what I think of as December weather. Today’s 16 degrees is a bit cold, I will admit, especially since the wind chill makes it feel closer to 0 degrees out, but at least cold makes it feel like December should feel.

What I think is the hardest to get used to though living in Oklahoma is the drastic change in weather. Yesterday, it was short sleeve, spring like weather and today you need turtlenecks and sweatshirts plus a heavy coat and gloves if you go out. I am glad that so far we have not received as much ice as they thought. We received some sleet last night but it could have been much worse.

Now that I have complained about the weather enough I think I will go bake some banana bread. It is a nice day for staying inside baking. I am also going to cook a big pot of chili and cornbread for dinner. That will make a perfect cold weather meal.

  1. I feel you. I’ve been complaining about weather for weeks now. We keep alternating between cold and hot, like you. But we don’t get quite as cold as you do…..and when we’re in a hot spell we’re around 80 degrees. SO not Christmas weather…I HATE it!!!

  2. I also live here in Oklahoma, I have lived here my entire life, but you never get used to such drastic changes. I like the cold weather but not this bitterly cold weather that we have. I am so thankful that we haven’t had ice yet, hopefully we don’t get any at all. I also have chili on my menu tonight

  3. I live just north of you in Kansas and our weather has done the same thing. Two days ago it was in the 60′s and this morning it was -3 windchill and snowing. 3″ so far.
