Every spring Oklahoma experiences a fifth season of weather. Tornado season. It's universally the time that every native and adopted Okie keeps a close eye on the sky, but the overwhelming majority have no idea what they're looking at.

Admit it, you've seen posts on social media like these...

  • "There's a wall cloud over (any location)"
    but it's actually just a dark cloud.
  • "I see rotation!"
    but it's more-or-less the winds blowing the clouds.
  • "I see a funnel!"
    Spoiler, it's not a funnel. Just some bored Susan looking for a little attention.

Lucky for all of us, the National Weather Service hosts severe weather classes all over our region.

NWS Norman
NWS Norman

They'll train you how to be a true weather spotter. What weather traits and cloud conditions to look for, red flags and tell-tale signs of severe weather, and how to report it directly back to the NWS in Norman.

In turn, they'll take your information to make the best recommendations for your specific area - watches, warnings, and advisories.

If you'd like to take the free class in person or online, here's a link to the details.

25 hilarious Oklahoma personalized tags DENIED by the DMV

A great way to personalize your vehicle is with a custom license plate. There are some pretty creative and funny tags running around the Sooner State. Some are easy to get, others will have you scratching your head trying to figure it out what it says. Personalized plates are very popular and we're seeing more of them on the road every day. However, there are some rules and restrictions when it comes to what you can and can't put on your plate. If it's considered obscene, vulgar, demeaning, or includes any mention of drugs, alcohol, or illegal activities it will be DENIED. Check out the photo gallery below of some of the most hilarious tags that were rejected by the Oklahoma Department of Motor Vehicles. WARNING: some of these could be considered offensive so if you're easily offended proceed with caution. You have been officially warned.

Oklahoma's Sooner-Six Skyscrapers

When it comes to the topic of skyscrapers and Oklahoma, the details are a little muddy. If you were to search "Oklahoma skyscrapers" online, it'll likely return a list of thirty tall Sooner State buildings, but while all skyscrapers are high-rises, not all high-rises are skyscrapers.

The modern-day definition of a skyscraper is based almost entirely on height. To be considered, a building must be at least 492 feet tall above ground level... Oklahoma has plenty of tall buildings around the state, but only the Sooner-Six qualifies by definition.
