Snow blankets OKC as storm rolls through
OKLAHOMA CITY– Less than a week after a storm brought ice, freezing rain and snow to Oklahoma, the Sooner State was hit again.
The snow started falling around Oklahoma City during the morning commute Friday.
Drivers towards the south dealt with slick roads and icy conditions, which caused numerous wrecks and collisions.
A drive many residents weren’t prepared to make.
Kim Gilliam said, “I’ve lived in Oklahoma my whole life; 20 percent and it snows, 100 percent and there’s no snow.”
Once the flakes started flying, they fell pretty fast.
In fact, more snow fell in parts of the metro and it actually stuck then fell during the Christmas Day storm this year.
Linda Rodriguez said, “I don’t like it. I’m not a snow person. Anything below 80 degrees is too cold for me.”
The storm itself produced mixed reviews from metro drivers.
Cheryl Schroonmaker said, “I like the cold with the snow. I don’t like the cold without the snow. My daughter ran in and said oh my gosh mom it’s snowing.”
Despite various accidents being attributed to the storm, there were no serious injuries reported.
