It’s a beautiful Friday, and the beginning of another month. But can you remember (if you lived in Oklahoma) what happened two years ago today? The above picture is a pretty good clue. Yeah, we were buried in a record-setting blizzard. More than 14 inches of snow dumped on Tulsa on February 1, 2011, and even more in outlying areas. To make it even tougher to swallow, the temperatures leading up to… Read More

Weather dude Mike Collier (that’s… Read More
President Obama returned to Washington DC from Global Warming Summit in Copenhagen. He was greeted by a huge snowstorm. Now what was that you saying about global warming Mr. President? Actress Brittany Murphy dead at 32. Tiger’s mom “angry and disappointed” in him. Join the crowd. It’s also reported he may be headed for sex rehab. 2010 should be an interesting year for Tiger.
