Coming off of a wonderful weekend with the Iafelices, we were eager to head over to Oklahoma, another state first for the both of us. Our work schedule was light--simply a 9:00 show, and that was it. But man.. it rained. and I mean RAINED. It started raining before 11:00 at night, and was raining when we arrived at the school, and was still raining as we tried to pack up and leave. It didn't stop raining as we drove away en route to Alma, Arkansas. It was a beautiful drive--we wove through the mountains, up and down, and witnessed the change of precipitation due to altitude.
Then it snowed.
I thought at first it was just due to being higher up in the mountains, but then it continued the entire rest of the three-hour drive. It even seemed to have been worse here in Arkansas, with around two inches of accumulation.
Thankfully, we arrived at our hotel before 2:30, and now we're just staying warm, dry, and playing with the Wii.
But still--it's snowing. On our Texas tour. This is what we came to avoid!
What a weird climate this winter here, huh? Snow in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Blizzard of the century in Washington, DC.
Let's think for a moment where it's not snowing. Denver. The highest-altitude state capital in the country. Vancouver, CANADA. Not a flake of snow, just in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Why don't they all come down to Oklahoma?
We got a call from tomorrow's school principal. Beside suggesting some place we can find some good catfish, he said he wasn't sure if they'd cancel school tomorrow. Apparently they were cancelled today. We'll find out.
Until then, stay warm. Stay dry. Talk to you later.
