Snow Day In March

Posted: Updated:

"We've been on operation slick streets most of the day," said Tulsa police officer Craig Murray, his pink patrol car standing out even more so against the blanket of white.

"Listening to the radio today, it wasn't bad, there were a few crashes, there's still a few crashes going on," he said.

Some, apparently solo, like the Nissan which slid off the road, and got stuck with it's rear tire in the air. A hazard mostly just encountered on side streets with the main roads looking like nothing even happened last night. But those neighborhoods?

"The neighborhoods people hopefully are gonna remember yeah they've got to drive slow and easy, be patient, give themselves plenty of time and not get in a hurry," he said.

Taking plenty of time herself, Alva Reese.

"All this for some blueberries? I like to put blueberries in yogurt," she said.

She took the bus to 41st and Harvard, and hit her own snow hazard when trying to use the sidewalks.

"Very distinctly I had a little bit of problems because they didn't clean the sidewalks, and it'd be nice if we could get the city to come out with some snow plows, especially by groceries stores and by bus stops," she said.

Meanwhile, trying to plow a nearby parking lot in full Bobcat wheelie mode, Rob Bryan, who was just too dang busy trying to keep up with his schedule to do an interview. On the flip side, and not worried in the least by all the snow, 8 year-old Ryan.

"Have you heard whether or not there's going to be school tomorrow? There isn't. What? Really, there isn't. Breaking News. Uh huh, there isn't," he smiled.

Officials pointing to those pesky side streets that still look more Sochi than Tulsa.

"Once that sun goes down, we're going to be looking at black ice," said Murray.

So take it slow out there, unless you're on a sled at the top of a well packed hill. Then by all means, go for it.
