Ice Storm 2007 (part 2)

My favorite local newscaster (Rick Mitchell of KOCO News Channel 5) is all about sensationalism, and so am I.  Every time there is the tiniest chance of bad weather, it gets some crazy name that they use to refer to it for weeks on end during the newscast and on the bottom of the screen scroll.  Well the most recent weather event is Ice Storm 2007, but I’m pretty sure that moniker was used back in January/February 2007 when we were previously frozen.  For shame, I expect more from my sensational journalists.

Still, I’ll be watching every glorious minute of coverage, now that we have power after 2.5 days.  There’s nothing better than watching the on-the-scene reporters freezing their tails off to show a) ice accumulation in the last 10 minutes, b) Oklahomans still can’t drive on ice, or c) ice melts when it gets over freezing.

On a side note, I have gotten some runs in even with the inclement weather.  Best was Sunday night as the first wave rolled through.  It was a glorious 5.25 miler.  Nothing better than finishing a run with rain freezing to your jacket.
