1- It appears we will be cloudy to start the day and hopefully partly cloudy this afternoon. I would like to see the sun again. Winds will be southerly so that should bring in warmer air. We’ll deal with several storm systems around the region this week but it appears we will have low chances for any precipitation. We may even see high temps in the 70s and maybe 80s Tuesday and Wednesday. A cold front will bring another wave of colder air like we just had but not sure if we will have freezing temps per guidance. We’ll see how that mess forms up a little later. That said, here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;

Today-Decreasing clouds. Patchy fog in the morning. Highs in the lower 60s. Southeast winds up to 10 mph shifting to the south in the afternoon.

Tonight-Mostly cloudy. Warmer. Lows in the lower 50s. South winds 10 to 15 mph.


It amazes me how some vendors out there will send you email stating that they are ready to send you everything you need so order from us today!! When you get to the end of the email, you see; due to short supplies it may take 3-6 weeks to fill your order. Welcome to my world trying to find supplies for our responder network here in the county. One thing we are learning from this is we need to have a better stock of supplies and even after this is over; I need to keep certain PPE for our responders so we don’t face this at this magnitude again. We and everyone else in this country are screaming for supplies and unfortunately we won’t get much or any at all.

If you call for medical help and firefighters show up, don’t be surprised to see them in full gear with mask and SCBA’s. We have to protect ourselves too and then we have to decontaminate our equipment after each call. That’s an adventure all in itself! We don’t want to scare you but we don’t want to get sick either. When we show up at the door, we’re not aliens; we’re the medical side of the fire service. We just look scary BUT REMEMBER, WE’RE HERE TO HELP!

FINALLY, COVID 19 has around a 90% recovery rate. Getting there is a bit rough but most folks will survive this.
