I want to thank everyone who called, emailed, and/or text messaged asking if my family and I were OK. The storms have left us shaken but otherwise we are well. Thank you.
I have lived to underwrite another day.
It’s been a rough year weather-wise out here in OK. Not that I’m keeping count but in the past year we have experienced:
- record snowfall
- torrential flash floods
- flat wind storms
- softball size hail
- excruciating relentless heat wave
- Texas Rangers losing the World Series in 7
- 5.6 earthquake
If you’ve never experienced an earthquake your brain starts firing off like crazy trying to figure out what’s happening. The noise is one of the strangest noises I have heard in my life. Did something hit the roof? But when the house started shaking I said “Earthquake”!!!!
Then I went back to sleep.
When I travel and tell people stories about the weather in Oklahoma, most find it hard to believe earthquakes occur in the state.
This post is further evidence that I am not joking about earthquakes in Oklahoma.
I think the “big one” is coming.
