OK Weather

No, the wind is not sweeping down the plain here in Oklahoma, despite what the song says.

After a great evening with my big (sic — i’m 4 inches taller and 50 pounds heavier) brother, i finally have a crack at the internet. 

It’s 10:50 local time on the 25th of May and the temperature is at 78 degrees Furnaceheight… which makes it 26 degrees Censelessgrade.  Pretty toasty for a May evening (in the northern hemisphere) in my book.

The weather news of the weekend was in the front page of this morning’s paper (along with all the news about local sports, but nothing of an international or national nature – – did nothing happen yesterday of note?).  Oklahoma is a primary state in ‘Tornado Alley’ (as dramatized in the noted flying cow movie, “Twister“).  Although there were none in my area, the state had at least 6 tornadoes yesterday.  Nobody, thank goodness, was hurt.

Well, that’s not quite true… many of you know what a soft-hearted doofus i am, so it was with great sadness i learned that a nearby pig farm was destroyed.  Luckily [GnuKid breathes a sobbing sigh of relief], most of the sows and piglets survived the twister.

So, in a tender memoriam for those swell swine not so fortunate to have survived, GnuKid enjoyed several strips of crispy and tasty bacon for breakfast.

Flying back to the Wilds of Ohio tomorrow…see you on the range there…

    Homer: Are you saying you’re never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
    Lisa: No.
    Homer: Ham?
    Lisa: No.
    Homer: Pork chops?
    Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
    Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

    I have indeed patterned my life after the teachings of “The Simpsons”… (sigh)

    See you on the range – are you implying we’re pigs? Sheesh, that’s one way to boost your blog traffic mate 😉 That said, be sure to pop over to the Cactus Patch and offer your considered and valued opinion on the entries to “Dazzle Me”. There’s R500 riding on it. Thanks.
    [That way I may not say anything how very dissapointed I was not to get an entry from you …. ]
    Love P, etc etc.

    Being slightly obsessed with piglets, my heart nearly stopped when you said “destroyed”

    But all is well…

    daisyfae – Honestly, there could be worse role models. Bless you, child, and carry on.

    nursemyra – actually, there’s more to me…but thank you.

    Parenthesis – pimping yourself? With threats? I like your style…

    Dolce – sorry for the scare… those little piggies are going “Weee, Weee, Weee” all the way home.

    Silverstar – thanks for the linkback!
