If so, this post may change your mind. We're currently experiencing the Blizzard of 2009, something that Oklahoma rarely ever sees.
Oklahoma City is the crossroads of three major interstates and numerous turnpikes, all of which are currently shut down. There are multi-car pile-ups around every bend, people stranded in the cold and the National Guard has been working since this morning to assist drivers.
Meanwhile, we're passing the time by opening a few gifts early, making arts and crafts, cooking and dancing to Christmas music. The timing of this storm just happens to coincide with the week that Michael has decided to train Roxy to potty outside. She's been pad trained her entire life, and is now refusing to pee outside during the blizzard. I don't blame her one bit, but I must say Michael's patience in continuing the training is admirable. Here they were this morning on one of several failed attempts to potty in the backyard:
Notice Roxy's ears. That's from the crazy blizzard wind.
Despite her doggy coat, Roxy is not excited for some outside time.
My dad and Susan are housebound with us and brought an ornament making kit with Grayson's hand print. That kept us entertained for a good portion of the morning.
By 3:30 Mike and Grayson couldn't stand it anymore and they decided to venture out.
It took about 10 minutes to get him dressed and about 45 seconds to decide he didn't want to be outside anymore.
Here's the view down our street a few hours ago.
Our house which currently has 2+ foot snow drifts surrounding it.
