I Don't Do Ice...

Well, I never been to Heaven
But I been to Oklahoma...........Three Dog Night sang it best!
I live on Tulsa Time.
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry...Bob Wills sang it best!
I am a dyed in the wool DumbAss Okie.

Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead!!

Big 12 Conference Champions!!!!

I deal with droughts and humidity.
I have only driven on ice twice and wound up in the ditch both times! The first time was the worst.
My stupid ExHubby was stuck in Tulsa during an ice storm....and he said, "Come Get Me!"
The WeatherDude said not to drive and EarlLee wanted me to come get him??????
Grandpa said not to do it!!!
But I had to do it!
So at about 4:30 I tried to get out of the driveway to drive to the 30 miles to Tulsa.....2 hours later I made it 15 miles...driving about 35mph...lost control somewhere between Collinsville and Owasso...and off into the ditch I went!
I sat there for about 30 minutes thinking someone would come by....nobody!
I had no cell phone....just my dog....thinking back, I don't know where the girls were....they would have been 5 and 7.....with a neighbor maybe?
So I decided to walk back the nearest town....5 miles.....or I could climb that fence and go to that house.....I walked to the was 6 foot tall with Barbed Wire across the top.....Why would any one do that????
Barbed Wire???
The Freakin' Turnpikes don't have Barbed Wire around the tops of the fences!!!!
There was no way I would have gotten me, my purse and the dog over that sucker!!
I took her back to the car, and locked her in....and started walking down the road....all this time nobody came along....about a 1/2 mile from the car....some pickup nearly hit me!!
They thought it best to pick me up.....or someone else would hit me.....and took me on in to Owasso, where my aunt lives.
I just left EarlLee to fend for himself!
The bastard put me into that situation in the first place....he could just hang out in Tulsa at work.
Deal with it, Buddy!
He was so mad!!!
We had a wrecker pull out the car the next day and the dog was just fine.
The second time....I was only around the corner from home so I just walked home....let Earl Lee deal with it!
And now I have Roy.......Roy took the day off on Friday to take me to work. And the BossMan let me go home at 12:00...Woo Hoo!!!
Monday Am: As I can't get my car out of the driveway....or into the parking lot at work.....I can drive on the roads.
They are clear!
But the parking lot is a thick sheet ice and snow....Roy brought me to work....VERY EARLY!
