OKLAHOMA CITY —
If the forecast is correct, the weather could become life-threatening, Denny said.
“If you want to know the weather forecast, ask a homeless person. They’re aware it’s coming, and we expect significant movement tonight and tomorrow night as this thing comes in,” he said.
About 80 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, Ada resident Billy Gibson, who has lived on his 2,000-acre grass ranch for nearly 40 years, said he is making sure his prize possession is in working order.
“It’s real simple,” Gibson said Wednesday. “The first thing I did was make sure my generator was running.”
His take on the weather projections? “I’m looking for ice and then maybe snow. I’m looking for it to be bad.”
But, like many ranchers and farmers, Gibson is a pragmatist: “We’ll make it. We’ll make it,” he said.
