What a trip...

We like storms, ice storms are our favorite.  The Groundhog Day storm was  coming, and we were ready, I locked up our trucks and headed north to meet Terry Woodring in Oklahoma City Sunday night January 30th. We arrived before the storm and prepared to ride it out, and it was cold and snowy, it brought Oklahoma City to it knees.  We were parked at Walmart and watched complete idiots trying to drive in 12-16 inches of snow, the entrances to Walmart were blocked with stranded cars and pickups, it was a mess.  We stayed to long as the storm left Oklahoma City, we should have left right then but we stayed another day in the OKC.  As the Storm made a big mess in Tulsa and heading Northeast, we had to get back in so we left OKC and drove to Wichita and then to Kansas City, St Louis, and on to Marshal, Ill. We were just behind it, we should have been quicker. We stayed a couple of days and then headed back to Springfield, MO, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Dallas and ended up at Onalaska, Texas, that was a 2100 mile storm chase.
