Fog * in Norman Oklahoma at 6 Bells – 6:00am CT this Monday morning, 5th day of December 2016. Sunrise to be 7:24am, sunset 5:17pm. A mostly cloudy high of 54F as a good shopping day – best from noon to sunset. Wind S at 11. Tonight’s low to be 37F. Arctic blast to slam into Norman by Wednesday night when wind shifts to N at 17 and actual temperature drops to 17, causing a wind chill of about zero. Oklahoma Natural Gas – ONG – scheduled to restore my gas hookup for heat this morning sometime between 8:00am and noon, just in time for the forecasted colder weather. I’ll probably go to Homeland grocery store during the afternoon for a few items, although I’m already fairly well stocked up. Maybe a stop at Dollar General. Next trip to Walmart likely to be Monday 12th when I also go to west branch library to use the printer, then to west branch post office, and maybe a stop at Burger King for an order of onion rings.
