All week the weather forecasters have been telling everybody to stay inside Saturday because of the snow.

People seem to have listened.

Sarah Phipps, Paul Hellstern and I spent the day looking for folks out in the snow in the Oklahoma City metro area and didn’t find many. Truthfully, we didn’t find a whole lot of snow either. The metro area was spared the blizzard that buried much of the north and western part of Oklahoma for the past two days.

For a gallery of some of what we did find, click here.
