There was a tornado is NE OK, but it was a small one. That was the first January tornado in OK since 1975, according to the news. There a storm we were a little worried about near Konawa, but it went to the west of us and never turned into a real tornado as far as I have heard.

Colleen, I hope you all have a quick sale on your house in NJ.

I hope so too, but for my own peace of mind, I'm not planning on it.

Home sales have been slow in OK too. Mostly it is because banks have cut back on their financing nationwide. My ex brother in law has had his house up for sale for several months, and our kids who are moving to Florida have not had any action on their place either.

Can't do that, LL. Not as much of those as in LA though. At least we have winter here, no mosquitoes or humidity then. There is flooding, sometimes, but only in certain places that you can avoid.

Now THAT'S funny! http://pages.prodigy.net/jimeez/_uimages/lmao.gif (broken link)

Here are some pictures for you... These were all from 2007 just around the Tulsa area.

Floods

Devastating winds (besides tornadoes)

Ice Storms

Wait till the weather warms up and I'll try to get some pics of the mosquitos here... You're gonna LOVE them!

I LOVE mosquito season!!!!!!! No bag limit, you can use a 22 and you have good shots at trophy mosquitoes. I got three last year that I was thinking about getting mounted in a lamp arrangement, but the mosquito taxidermist was so far behind he wasn't taking any new orders.

Isn't that strange that all of that happened in one year?!! Unbelievable. Floods, Winds, and an Ice Storm. Man, I hope Oklahoma gets a break in 2008.

I managed to lasso a nice one last year with some braided fishing line, but he chewed through it and got away!

Don't forget T.S. Erin (http://climate.ok.gov/newsmedia/erin_eye.jpg - broken link) Here is our "Year in Review" from the Oklahoma Climatological Survey.


LL, The scorpions really aren't that big of a deal... the Turkey Vultures and Tarantulas eat most of 'em.
