I love living in Oklahoma; the weather here is never boring. And we have the uncanny ability to come up with witty weather words like gustnado and thundersnow, like somehow because we live here, we can invent words out of thin air.
I love how the grocery stores run out of milk and hamburger meat and toilet paper. Like we are spending our snow days eating hamburgers, locked in the bathroom.
I love how the kids use the embankments beside the highways for sledding, and long lines of SUV’s line the shoulder with parents inside sipping Starbuck’s and talking on their iPhones.
I love how life just stops during a big snowstorm and we can just sit back and enjoy it. How boring would it be to live in a place where blizzards happen all winter long and they don’t get to skip work or skip school or make up words?
I love having absolutely nowhere to go so I don’t feel any guilt about staying in my PJ’s all day.
Stay warm today, my friends!
