At least, I don't have to worry about him driving in it, he doesn't have a car up there.

There's one across the parking lot from his building. Knowing him and his crew, they'll at least think about going! The dining hall is closer.

A blizzard is a dramatic event, especially for people who seldom experience them.

There will be numerous car wrecks, and acts of heroism to rescue people.

For those of us who have planned ahead to sit this one out in safety and comfort, it will be very exciting to follow the news.

With that said, I once again encourage everyone in northern Texas, and in Oklahoma to take care of any urgent tasks you may have TODAY, as in "right now!!!"

Yes, it is sunny, mild and in the 60s. In a few hours it won't be.

Call or get in touch with your family members and friends and TELL them that the BLIZZARD is COMING!!!

Once it hits, countless idiots will venture out into it to purchase things they could have certainly lived a couple of days without, and emergency first responders will have to go get their dumb ass out of a bad situation.

Hey, Saddletramp. Take a look at this! Click on the top where it says,"URGENT". It'll take you to a slide/video presentation of the storm. Really nice! I think this is the first time they've done this.

Looks like you are in for it today. Stay safe up there, AND, don't forget your bread and milk!LOL I've got mine, but I have to hit the store for a couple of things myself. We have a little more time to get ready than you do.

Oh it's beautiful here right now, mid 50's, just a light breeze, got the cattle and horses fed, put out extra hay for tomorrow...but you can see that blue line coming down from the North...and the wind is starting to move around and come in from the North...

This is what we up here on the high plains call a Blue Norther...

Keep an eye on that radar, Saddletramp. Precip is starting to show up around Amarillo and just west of Clovis. I'm seeing the fronts from my place. It may be just verga, but it'll bring the moisture to the lower levels.

I really HATE Blue Northers!!!

AND, there isn't much out there past Amarillo, until you get to the LBJ rest area. Not much east of that, either, until you get closer to OKC. It's not a good place to be in any storm.

 Quoting: Texan Buckeye


Anybody travelling I-40 cross country would be wise to make it on into OkC while they can, and hunker down. Lots of decent places to stay and restaraunts to eat out just north of Will Rogers airport, off I-40.

Any travellers reading this, please listen up, and stay out towards the airport in west OKC, not on the east side of town.

If they can't get that far, there are more places now on the First Nation's land. Getting as close to OKC is better, though. It'll be easier to find hotels there and there is enough time to get there, before the blizzard hits.

Re: Blizzard Warning, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas...UPDATE: National Guard Called In To The Texas Panhandle
Thanks for the thread and the heads up. It is beautiful in the DFW area today - 68 degrees and sunny!


The Storm Prediction Center has issued their standard risk of severe weather for parts of Texas tonight. This standard risk of severe weather includes much of western North Texas and the Texas Hill Country. The risk runs along and north of Interstate 10 from Sonora east to Kerrville and south of Highway 287 from Vernon to Bowie. A few cities in this zone include Wichita Falls, Mineral Wells, Abilene, San Angelo, San Saba, and Junction. This is the zone where confidence is highest that the strongest thunderstorms could produce larger hail. The primary threat will be quarter to half-dollar size hail and prolific cloud to ground lightning. There is a low-end tornado threat as well, but nothing that gives us great concern at the moment. Another secondary concern is localized areas of 60+ MPH winds.

Outside of this orange-shaded zone, there is the risk of strong storms with small hail. We don’t expect any severe weather threat to develop before 10 PM. Most of the activity will be from 10 PM into Monday morning. Here is a simulated radar image from the Texas Tech Weather Model at midnight tonight. It has a line of thunderstorms already in progress. We’ll keep an eye on the severe weather potential tonight along with the paralyzing blizzard in the Panhandle.

Hey, Cowgirl! Welcome to our blizzard party! I've got to go for awhile, but I'll pop in and out until later. I'm still waiting for the NWS update. The wind has picked up a little and the clouds are just starting to move in. We still have lots of blue sky, though. It's still 68 F. here, so it's all good for now.

Yw! It's kind of caught a lot of us off guard. I knew Amarillo and OK were going to get hit, but we (Lubbock) weren't supposed to get anything yesterday. We still aren't going to get much, but wind and a little snow, but I'll take it!

You're pretty close to the snow line, so I would make sure you won't need Pepsi for a day or two!
