In hardly half an hour, it went from hardly being able to see across the road to a picture perfect evening. Welcome to Oklahoma! :huh:

 

And it's December. While other people are getting snow, we're getting rain, hail, and tornadoes.

You live in Oklahoma and you consider that bipolar?

 

I've seen it go from 80 degrees to snow overnight! And I've seen, in western Oklahoma, it go from the 90s to an ice storm in the span of a couple of days.

Stormy and then partly cloudy? Come on now, that's normal area weather! xD

At least it's not like Chicago, where you can get all 4 seasons in 1 day.

 

I think it's still trying to figure out which season it is with it hitting nearly 70 degrees lately. This time last year, it was, like, 20 degrees. It's pretty ridiculous. It's December for crying out loud.

Here's an example on what it's like in Chicago.

 

Last January it was 15 below 0. And right now, it's like 40 degrees. Mother nature sure is a mystery.

Have you heard of the cold front in late 1911 where record highs and lows were broken the same day? Oklahoma City was 83 that afternoon and it dropped all the way to 17 that night. I think I also heard something along the lines of two people in Chicago who died - one from a heat stroke and the other froze to death - in the same 24 hours. 

 

I could only imagine the kind of panic that would have spread.

Pretty interesting read
