We enjoyed our ten years in Edmond. The five roofs we had to put on were somewhat less enjoyable. I will say that Oklahomans know their local geography in a way that is uncommon for anywhere else we’ve lived. They know the county names and road numbers and other landmarks because they are so accustomed to hearing things like: “there’s a tornado on the ground at _______”. One of the scariest moments of my life was being on MacArthur Blvd just north of the Kilpatrick Turnpike and hearing the radio meteorologist say, “If you are in Deer Creek, you are out of time. Be in your shelter now.” Pulled into a Braums and we got in their freezer room which was not an altogether bad place to be.
