January 2010 Ice/Snow Storm

The latest Oklahoma ice/snow storm dumped about 1/4" of ice and 5"-6" of snow on Muskogee. For just an example of how it looks compared to the previous major ice and snow storms, here are two shot that I have photographed in each storm.

Shot one:
January 30th, 2010 (ice and snow)

December 27th, 2009 (snow)

January 28th, 2009 (ice and sleet)

January 14th, 2007 (ice)

Shot two:
January 30th, 2010 (ice and snow)

January 29th, 2009 (ice and sleet)

January 13th, 2007 (ice)

There really isn't any ice damage this time, especially nothing that can be compared to the Great Ice Storm of January 2007. Judging from how long the Christmas Eve 2009 snow lasted, it may be a while until this snow melts, and it will certainly be weeks until the ground, saturated as it already was, dries out.

Good to see your update Jamison. I wondered how all my Oklahoma friends were doing in this latest storm. Thanks for the pictures - I like the comparison by years.

I am not sure, but I think we have between 6-8 inches of snow here in Roland. My youngest daughter said it was the most snow she had ever seen at one time. Very little ice this go around, which is a good thing. I don't like ice.
