The cold snap had families, cyclists and joggers packing the trails in Tulsa on Wednesday, because they know they may have to stay inside for the next few days.
Oklahoma Department of Transportation says when it falls below freezing pothole crews are on the road.
As temperatures continue to drop businesses that rely on patio weather are keeping a close eye on the storm bringing a cold snap.
Every parking spot at Blue Rose and Elwoods at 21st and Riverside was filled on Wednesday. That may not be the case on Thursday.
“Use the gym membership tomorrow,” said cyclist Jessica Wiist. “I’ve been watching the weather to see what it’s like.”
The Elwood’s manager says he anticipates rain this time of year but not temperatures in the 30’s.
“May 1st, I never thought I would have to be worried about it,” said Ryan Jones.
If it gets below 60 degrees, Jones says he’s closes the patio.
“It’s crazy, I heard something about snow,” says Jones.
In April, 2007, a half an inch of snow fell in Green Tulsa.
“This is about as nutty as it gets,” said Norris Streetman.
The realtor says he is not worried about the cold front moving into the area.
“Don’t you know Oklahoma? From one day to the next, you can never figure it out,” said Streetman.
However, he is counting on rain. Streetman says he buys and sells hay ranches which are struggling because of the drought.
“Knock on wood it keeps raining because everything is looking good,” said Streetman. “Look at how beautiful it is, my goodness. Who wants to think about tomorrow and cold. It’s beautiful today.”
