Gulp gulp


Well THAT was exciting, no? We knew the front was going to cool us down, bring
rain and a chance of severe weather. Who knew the Beach Boys would become the
Waterspout Boys, however (unless you've been living in a cave, I'm sure you 
heard the Beach Boys concert at the Riverwind Casino west of Norman was 
interrupted by a very unwelcome guest in the form of a tornado). Still no word
on the twister's intensity, but NWS personnel will no doubt have that info 

The good news was the mostly-statewide rain that fell with the storms, with 
amounts ranging from 1-3 inches across a good portion of the southeastern two-
thirds of the state. Some a bit more, some a bit less, although the NW corner
went without. 

Now we're in for a roller coaster ride typical of fall with fronts, warm ups 
and some dreaded/welcomed (pick your poison) flirtations with freezing weather...
all this week!

Our NWS friends will help us out here:


Step right up and get your fall roller coaster tickets! 

It's not like you have a choice.
