    I wanna go home

    We are in Norman, Oklahoma for a family wedding. Didn't think I would have time for the computer. Wrong. Weather changed from warm and rainy to cold and freezing ice, very-very bad conditions. Talk about losing power, staying off roads, etc. A motel isn't the best location for a survival situation without power. Probably not the worst either if water stays on. We are supposed to leave Sunday for Arkansas, not looking good right now. I don't look forward to driving on ice. Have done it much in my lifetime. It isn't the ice that scares me, I can drive slow and safely under most conditions. It is the idiots on the road over which there is no control. Oh, well. Upside is got to see my daughter who came in from Colorado where her husband is stationed in the Air Force. Haven't seen her in a year.

    My wife and a couple of her friends were going to go to Kansas City.
    She decided to stay home, due to the upcoming threat of freezing rain around here. It is raining now, getting colder.

    Take care there Frank. Do be careful if you venture out on those roads

    Wishing everyone in the path of that ice storm a safe and happy weekend!

    Frank nailed it - even if you drive sanely on the ice, there will be an idiot who thinks he can stop on a dime on the ice because he has 4 wheel drive.

    Today, I would welcome chiggers compared to what we have. Wedding is today and driving is extremly dangerous. Haven't seen any snow removal equipment out at all, yesterday or this a.m.
