Christmas Eve Snow Storm

I am so glad I was able to get moved to a house earlier this week, but snow did get on the car from going in and out through the garage.

I am sure members up north are use to this, but the local TV weather said this was the very first Blizzard Warning for the Tulsa area.

I had to get out this evening to drive to downtown Tulsa and cars were stuck everywhere. Visibilty was extremely poor. Luckily I was driving my 4 wheel drive truck.

If it wasn't for it being a white Christmas, I would really hate this.

my girlfriend lives in ada, and i couldn't believe it when she told me there was a lot of snow there. I still have about 7 inches of snow from the snow storm last week in PA here.

I live in Lawton-We got a ton of snow along with 60-70 MPH winds- Power poles are damn near touching the ground, yes the poles are horizontal. Snow drifts, due to the wind are up to 7 feet in areas.

Glad I have a truck for just these occasions.

i drove my camaro w/ summer tires (big mistake) to chickasha, tryin to get to duncan for work.. all the cars at the mcdonalds and gas station off the tpk were stuck, so needless to say, i got stuck too.. anyways, i freed myself and stuck around to push other families out.. after while i decided it was time to go home and drove back to the city and got stuck in front of my neighborhood..couldnt go up the entrance. family pushed it and finally got it back. it was an adventure.. snow literally filled the camaro up.. it was literally white out conditions.. i saw flipped vehicles, many stranded vehicles..

Dude,
That sucks, I am off until after the 4th of January. How did the Maro fair in the sleet? I haven't had mine out. You get them headers on?

Later,

Mike

Yep - I got snowed in as well. Had a drift very similar to the one tbarber had, but it was right up against the side of my car.

My poor hubby spent most of yesterday pulling people out of ditches and those who were stuck in the snow with his HD Silverado. I gave my brother in laws hell because he had to pull their F250 and Dodge LOL

I thought it was bad up here, but I believe the OKC area has it a lot worse.

This is why I don't live in Minnesota with many of my relatives.

tbarber87: That 6 foot drift is amazing! I thought I had a bad one - a 3-footer along the chain link fence between my house and the neighbors'.

It took quite a while to get rid of the 18" drift across my driveway (it slowly tapered down to about 6" at the street.) I was getting cabin fever and was completely out of soft drinks so I "had" to get out yesterday. To the best of my knowledge, the only other rear wheel drive vehicles I saw were pickups. I bet it was the first time I've driven and didn't see another Mustang - even at the grocery store.

Well your in NY!! Here in OK the most we get is a massive ice storm that traps us in for a few days. . .so any snow is amazing to us, let alone 6' drifts

Adams: Before the 2010 I had a firebird that I drove ALL weather, it was a mess haha like I said before, luckily my dad has gratiously (sp?) volunteered to drive me around everywhere for the next week or more in his big bad truck
