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.
