The temperature fluctuations in May have many people Green Country wondering; where did spring go?
Tulsa resident, Kathy Miller, tells FOX23 she didn’t think she would still be turning on the heat in May.
“It’s cold,” said Miller, “I’m supposed to be getting ready to be in a bathing suit, not wearing the winter coat that I already put away.”
“I think it’s horrible, absolutely horrible,” said Anthony Smith of Tulsa. Smith says that his typical spring routine has been disrupted because the rain has kept him indoors.
Bob Jamison tells FOX23 he has lived in Oklahoma for 54 years and is used to an erratic forecast in Oklahoma. He says that this week has been especially odd with snow flurries and a freeze possibility.
“I’ve never seen it do this in May,” said Jamison.
Not everyone in Tulsa was bothered by the lower temperature. Cyrus Downey said that he was enjoying the cooler temperatures.
“It’s a nice variation,” said Downey.
Miller says that she is prepared for anything, but more than ready to transition from using the heat to the air conditioning unit.
“I’d take a 100 degree day any day over this,” said Miller.
