I obviously have completely the wrong perception of what Oklahoma is like, I thought is was plains and wide open spaces and stuff.......
Cold sort of didn't factor into my thinking of the place, but I've not been there so I'm running on media.
All 'Grapes of Wrath' and stuff....
Oklahoma is pretty geographically diverse. One end of the state is a desert, complete with huge dunes and a contingency of avid fans driving buggies & 4 wheelers all over it. There's a lot of land that is 'plains', and it's really quite beautiful - far more contour than Dallas, which is flat as an ironing board. LOTS of lakes & water activity. The only problem, as TK mentioned, is with the neighbors.
That said, we don't get snow real often, but ice is fairly regular winter problem. That's true as far south as Dallas and Austin, Texas....true in Atlanta, Georgia...you have to get pretty damned far south to avoid it altogether. Even Houston has seen ice and/or snow in the past decade, and they're on the Gulf of Mexico. So. Much. For. Global. Warming.
Looks like the boy's school is cancelled; not sure if I'm going in to work today. I could use a free day off, or at lest a significant delay in arrival.
