kpluta, this is all your fault. The heavenly weather controller TOTALLY got the O states mixed up. Although how s/he could have confused Oklahoma with Ohio is beyond me.
I should go out and take pictures. I don’t have to drive in this crap today, so it’ll make for some pretty photos. It hasn’t snowed like this since Aidan was a new little baby, back in 2004. Thank God it’s happening over a weekend.
