Snow and Waffles
I’m up. The waffles are on the griddle. Two of our station employees, Nancy Flemings and Terri Adcock, are fixing breakfast for us. Slept for a couple of hours (I think) at the station. First thing I heard when I woke up was a commercial for the Tulsa Boat, Sport and Travel show that starts today. Good luck on that one.
It’s a little past 6 am. Weather dude Mike Collier (that’s him in front of the green wall) told me that 9 inches has already fallen in Tulsa. Tough to measure because it’s blowing around so much. It’s well on track to surpass our record one day snowfall of nearly 13 inches back in ’94.
Good Morning Oklahoma anchors, Keith Taylor and Kristin Dickerson, drew the short straw.
They have to stand outside for all of their “live” shots. From 4:30 to 10am. Meteorologist Taft Price is out somewhere holding a yardstick up in the snow. He must have drawn the short yardstick. Good luck on that one.
I’m getting people Facebooking me, asking if their school is closed today. What do you think? ABC News says it could be the worst snowstorm the country has seen in more than 40 years. More than a foot of snow may fall on a 2100 mile stretch from New Mexico to Maine.
