This wild arctic weather is creating quite a stunning situation at Lake Lawtonka.

Between the rolling white-capping waves, the unrelenting wind, and shockingly cold air and windchill temperatures, Lawtonka looks like the apocalypse is happening in real time.

You have to give credit where credit is due and praise the camera person. To be brave enough to go out in this weather to share a crazy spectacle with the people is somewhere on the scale between foolish and courageous.

If you're like most people, you're looking out the window thinking "I have to travel in this stuff..." looking into the weekend.

I have to make a drive a few hours north to be home for the holidays this weekend. While Lawton is unbelievably getting the light version of this storm, my entire route home is clogged with slick roads and tragic fatal wrecks.

As bad as it seems, odds are things will return to a more normal level by Saturday when the winds die down.

If you're planning on traveling, be smart and wait out this arctic blast. When you are finally able to get on the roads, dress as if you'll be stranded. Warm clothing, lots of layers. Plan for the worst in case Uncle Murphy tries to give you a Darwin Award.
