Time to Shiver…

Rick was talking about how old he is in the post below, that same storm system that brought in all that wind yesterday (the same one he was talking about), is now bringing in our potential for frost and maybe even our first freeze. Oklahoma City has not experienced our first freeze yet, but when it approaches, which statistically should be in the next week or two, then we will see our area under a freeze watch/warning. So, what’s the big fuss on having freeze watches and warnings? And, when it comes January, why don’t we see more of them? The answer actually rests in agriculture! Freeze and frost advisories/warnings are solely for the gardening/farming community. Even though our growing season has slowed down a lot, it’s still there and thus, issuing these types of warnings are to raise awareness to take whatever is necessary to protect from damaging the crops.  After a few freezes, the growing season will come to an end, as will the need to issue frost and freezing warnings.
