Reporter’s Notebook: Two days of returning of ice age in Oklahoma 

A massive ice storm went through the Sooner State on Jan. 22 and 23, 2024. In Tulsa, 0.28 inches of freezing rain accumulated, according to the National Weather Service. The roads were turned into a complete sheet of ice, creating hazardous conditions for drivers.

 I observed the storm from a rural area of Oklahoma near Keystone Lake. I could see nature becoming an icy wonderland. I am eager to share my photos and observations.
