Weird sort of prediction for tomorrow’s storms:
Low chance of getting a storm that produces a tornado, but if we do, it’ll be a doozy.

Tuesday Update: The Storm Prediction Center has outlined a zone from Oklahoma City -Kansas City -Central Iowa (all areas inside the red circle) as having the risk for strong tornadoes tomorrow.

The Storm Prediction Center makes daily tornado forecasts and when they feel there is a threat for significant tornadoes, they outline the areas with black dashed lines.

For Tuesday, this is a very large area they have outlined. The chance for storms is low,but should one develop,it would be significant.

The world would be a better place if she was running things, and now you have a chance to make sure she is running things. GO VOTE

Hey Normanites, our long time bestie and former co-editor Helen Grant is running for city council. You should vote for her, she's competent, hardworking, and brilliant.

Just doing the work and connecting with voters! Thank you to the folks showing support and taking signs! Conversation today encompasses unarmed mental health crisis response, explaining how Norman Care-A-Vans came to be and how it operates now, water rates, stormwater, development and developers - how pattern code can bring communities into better alignment. Actually, pattern code can help someone who isn’t a developer do a build that meets their needs and is something the community wants to see in their neighborhood.

Don't let Denethor fool you. In reality, not so bad...about a 24-hour storm. Some slippery travel for awhile, with 2-4 inches of snow in some areas. the glaze of ice could be tricky! Back to spring in no time, however. #okwx #okmesonet

But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard!”

…..

Well done, random clerk at DOT, you’ve managed to piss off literally every person in Norman.

I was waiting until after tonight's study session to share my thoughts about ACCESS Oklahoma, so I could ensure that I had the facts before commenting. Here are some facts as well as my thoughts after the presentation and hearing my Council colleagues' comments. You can view the Council study session here, and the ACCESS Oklahoma discussion is first: https://youtu.be/PDl8xEbt5J0

Facts
1. Myself and some of staff knew about this days before it was publicly announced.
2. We are not being given much hope on being able to stop or significantly change the proposal that can be found at https://www.accessoklahoma.com/ Not a single city in Oklahoma has yet to stop the Oklahoma Transportation Authority (OTA).
3. The best person to send your complaints and concerns to is the Oklahoma Transportation Authority. As of Friday afternoon, they had received 400 calls, all answered or returned by an actual human. Give them a call at 1-844-562-2237.
4. The "Southern Extension" route is app. 29 miles long with app. 12.5 miles of it in Norman. For comparison, the section of I-35 that runs through Norman is 7 miles long.
5. This construction could possibly affect 6 water wells.
6. We are going to have to completely overhaul our Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) along with our Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The CTP was due to be updated soon anyway, and the Land Use Plan is well past due. We will also have to look at all of our water and wastewater line plans as well.
7. Office of Ward 5 Councilman Rarchar S. Tortorello is hosting a town hall on this issue, and OTA staff will be present to get your feedback. Everyone is welcome to attend: Thursday, 3/3 at Crosspointe Church. I have another city event conflict and will be unable to attend, but I look forward to watching the recording.
8. I reached out to our partners at the Oklahoma Municipal League last week to ask what we can do to fight this. I urged them to do what they can to help give cities more notice on the expansion of turnpikes, because I know we're not the only ones that have been through this. My understanding is that they will be following the OTA more closely now. I will follow-up with them again this week.
9. The next Council discussion on this issue will be the study session on March 29th at 5:30pm at City Hall.

My Thoughts
1. It's complete and utter crap that this plan has clearly been in the works for clearly quite some time, and no attempt was made to get feedback from residents, city staff, or city & state elected officials. Even if this turnpike proves to be a good thing 20 years from now, the delivery was beyond bad and people are upset right now. As Councilmember Stephen Tyler Holman pointed out, if this concept was being tossed around as early as 2016 and residents had known about it then, maybe they wouldn't have bought land or built homes near the proposed location.
2. One of the things I love most about Norman is our dual character of having both urban and legit rural parts of our community. This turnpike changes everything. We are a resilient community and we will adapt, but as The Office of Ward 3 Councilman Kelly Lynn plainly put it: this sucks.
3. People are losing family homes where loved ones were born and passed on, dream homes built from the ground up, forever homes for the twilight years of retirement. Yes, we will work with residents to make sure they get maximum $$$ for their property, but damn. Councilmember Elizabeth Foreman - Ward 6 and Brandi Studley Norman City Council Ward 1 shared very sad personal stories of how this turnpike will impact their families directly. I have read email after email of truly heartbreaking stories. I am so very sorry.
4. This is unacceptable. No one on Council is happy about this. We have asked staff to look into legal options to stop this from happening. Additionally, based on the unanimous and united issue that Council has with the project and how it went down, I am going to ask staff to draft a resolution that we can vote on and send to the OTA and Gov. Stitt. I get the need for expansion and progress, but in this case Oklahoma did not put Oklahomans first. Norman residents weren't even asked what they thought or how it would impact them. Your Council will not just sit by and say "Oh, well."

Keep calling OTA. Attend Thursday's meeting. We are not waving the white flag yet, and neither should you. In terms of how this situation was handled and regardless of the possible long term benefit, Norman residents deserved better than this.

As the court charged with overseeing the Indian Territory, now the state of Oklahoma, Judge Issac Parker worked with U.S. Marshals to uphold the law based out of what is today Fort Smith National Historic Site. One of the first was Bass Reeves, who became a legend for his bravery, heroics, and incredible handlebar mustache. Reeves would serve as Deputy U.S. Marshal for 32 years, making more than 3000 arrests, until Oklahoma statehood in 1907. No wonder that some historians consider Bass Reeves to be one of the inspirations for the Lone Ranger. #FindYourPark #BlackHistoryMonth

Hello - Can anyone give me info on Frontier City? We're thinking about coming to OKC for several days towards the end of May and were thinking about taking our grandkids to Frontier City. I've heard rumors that we shouldn't do that and that most of the time, a lot of the rides are not operational but won't know that until we're actually paid our money and are in the park itself. Can anyone give me some guidance?
Great concert coming up for the Gen X and Millennial crowd!
