True stories about being married to a TV Meteorologist

Given that today is the first snow day this season that Oklahoma has had, I thought it’d be appropriate to present you with the 5 stages of a snow day as told by viewer comments, and then me:

  1. Denial and Isolation

Viewer: “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

Me: “Hey, Aaron, is it really going to snow?”

I dont believe you

  1. Anger

Viewer: “Rule of thumb: Whatever is predicted by OKC Meaty Urologists, we’ll actually get 1/10th of that. So, we’ll get about 1/10th of an inch here in OKC.”

Me: “What do you mean you have to work extra hours!? It’s only 1-2 inches!”


  1. Bargaining

Viewer: “Can I please get a snow day for work?”

Me: “If they have you work extra hours, can you get an extra day off?”

  1. Depression

Viewer: “I am so ready for summer!”

Me: “I guess the dogs and I will catch up on some Netflix. I’ve been meaning to watch every episode of Mad Men in one block of time.”


  1. Acceptance

Viewer: “I love the snow, hell if it’s going too be cold, it makes it even better w/ the snow!”

Me: “Yay, Netflix!”


I’m not sure how much snow we’ve actually gotten as I’ve done today what I’ve always done when watching local news, where I watch it and it goes in one ear and out the other, but I like to base everything off of the amount of snow the dogs bring into the house, so I’m guessing we’ve gotten like 10″inches or so. The reporters are all standing outside freezing their butts off reporting on driving conditions on the 1-2″ we’ve gotten in the metro, it’s pretty much looking like this out there:


Yay snow days!
