Aftermath

Posted in General News, Weather News at 4:23 pm by Rebekah

The storm system that wreaked havoc from the Plains to the East Coast has exited the country and is over the Atlantic now.  The temperature has stayed in the 20s in Norman today and the sky is overcast, so there’s not much melting going on today.  The icicles are dripping, though.  I went outside for a bit earlier today to take some photos and measure the snow depth.  Around my apartment, I measured an average of 5-7 inches of snow (4.5 inches on my car), with 0.5 to 0.75 inches of ice below that.  I measured about 0.5 inches of ice encasing the trees.  I also saw some snow drifts of nearly 14 inches.

I designed a slide show of some of my photos and posted it to my website under the photos link: www.greenskychaser.com/photos/photos2010storm.htm The slide show plays in Windows Media Player, but it’s embedded; I don’t know if it will work for people who don’t have Windows Media Player.  If you can’t view it, please let me know so I can look into other options.  I may eventually move all of my photo galleries into this format.

Expect more updates on the website tomorrow afternoon, including 2008 chase logs and photos, a redesigned forecast page (again!), and possibly a few other changes.

As always, if you have any comments or suggestion, please let me know!
