So this is a typical forecast scene for Oklahoma . . . ice. Yes, ice. And yes, we are right in the middle of that big purple swatch of ice danger sweeping across the Southern Plains. We are under a Winter Weather Warning and ice has started falling from the thick, gray, winter clouds already, hours earlier than the prediction of last nights' weather report . . .
Lord willing we won't lose power here on the base. We have tons of food and lots of blankets, so we are prepared. I think. And we also have a lot of formula, diapers, wipers and nursery water (yes, I use nursery water because of the possibility of lead in the pipes contaminating the water supply and the detrimental health effects to Sophie . . .). Anyway, we shall see how the day goes . . . so far it's pretty quiet. Sophie is napping unexpectedly early and Mike was released early from work and is upstairs doing something . . . so here I am, finally getting to blog! :)
