Re: Blizzard Warning, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas...UPDATE: National Guard Called In To The Texas Panhandle
Well, this is the worst I've ever seen. They had really bad blizzards up here in 1957 and 1889, and according to the data, this is certainly comparable with that...

I'm not worried about me you understand, I'm fine. The Electricity is still working (knock on wood), house is warm, the temps outside aren't terrible until you factor in wind chill...

I worry more about my animals in things like this, the Livestock losses are going to be unbelievable up on the baldies (the flat country), and the feedlots will be dragging deads for weeks, luckily I have my cattle in a pasture here in Texas with good cover, and thank God for that, but they're going to need some hay in the next few days, and I suspect it's going to be awhile before I can even get down the road to them...skid loader will be useless in this deep snow, and my tractor is in New Mexico...

And this happened right in the dead middle of calving season up here...so I'm praying my babies will be okay. Them old cows are pretty savie though, and it's always surprising how good they come out of these things...
 Quoting: Saddletramp


Your post made me really sad Saddletramp. With the drought over the past few years, the price of hay (if you can find it), and now this...It's certainly going to take its toll on an industry that has already been hit really hard. I pray all the livestock makes it through this. (and the people too)
 Quoting: CowgirlK


We've got hay to burn here, but it's a bit of a long haul...

I remember one year that hay farmers in Washington and Idaho donated hay and trucking to get feed to the midwest, but that was when energy was affordable.
 Quoting: waterlily


Saddletramp, I missed the part about the calves. I hope they'll be ok. Heifers have pretty good instincts when it comes to their babies.

Live radar of OK, with links to various weather chaser cams:

The one out on I-40 about 1/3 of the way west from Norman to Amarillo is pretty scary.

Still light rain here in the OKC area, little wind, not freezing, no snow...yet.

... Blizzard Warning in effect from 6 PM this evening to 3 am CST
Tuesday for all of the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles...

The National Weather Service in Amarillo has issued a Blizzard
Warning... which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 3 am CST
Tuesday. The Winter Storm Watch is no longer in effect.

* Event... snow will increase in intensity tonight and continue into
Monday across the panhandles. Total snowfall accumulations of 8 to
14 inches will be likely across the central and eastern Texas and
Oklahoma panhandles with 3 to 8 inches across the western Texas and
Oklahoma panhandles. In addition... strong northerly winds of 30 to
40 miles per hour with gusts to 60 miles per hour will create extremely
dangerous travel conditions...

This is a pretty good storm, so be careful if you are traveling on the I40 Corridor through Oklahoma & The Texas Panhandle this evening and Monday...

I been wondering that myself for the last few years...but I grew up here during the wet cycle of the 1980's, 90's & Early 2000's...and there are times it's literally like heaven on Earth, but every since the Wildfires of 2006 it's just been one thing after another...

But I have a place in Florida too, and when a Hurricane tears up shit people say the same thing about them too...

I'm in KC and it just started snowing. The whole city is racing around preparing. Stood in line at the pharmacy for an hr just to pick up a script I called in two days ago, and another hour at the grocery store. After the foot of snow we got on Thursday, I'm curious to see what happens. The residential side streets were not well plowed and there are cars still buried from the last storm. The shoulders on the interstate weren't cleared, so there is nowhere for vehicles to pull over.

I am prepared enough that I won't need to leave my house for at least a week if need be. If the power goes out, that's another story. My house is all electric, so it will get cold quick. But we didn't lose power with the last storm, so I'm optimistic.

Hi guys. I'm fine. Most of the snow is just blowing somewhere else. We don't have anything like Saddletramp has. My front window is covered in ice, though. Visibility is still about 1/4 mile.

I'm mad, though. Hubs just told me he's going in to work tonight. He manages a hotel in our little town and the overnight person already called off. We live as far out of town as she does, but she has a d***ed 4 wheeldrive pick up. We have a d****ed PT Cruiser. Hockley Co. doesn't have snow plows, they have road graters/dirt levelers. I'm not so mad that she called off, I'm mad that hubs thinks that stupid, little car will make it through this mess. AND...the owner lives right behind the hotel. I'm SO sick of no one listening.

Sorry for the rant. He grew up in Ohio, too, so he knows what's out there. I think he's forgotten we're not in snowplow land anymore. He also thinks he's indestructible. We're too old for this!

We did ok here, but we were on the south end of the storm. Power didn't even flicker, but today, my internet keeps going down.
