Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

I read the link and noticed that most of the things they tracked were directly tied to high tax expenditure. Since I am retired with limited resources, high tax states that they said were great are not great for me. I also noticed that the "great" were the coastie states. Perhaps a bit of bias ther...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

11 out of 21, 52.3% WOW was that a terrible late night / early morning. Went into the storm shelter 3 times. Really confused the dog. I need a nap. Not going to get it - I'm not a day sleeper - but I sure need it. There's flooding in parts of 3/4 of the state (some areas got over 6" of rain over the...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

Look! We've been dinked again. 43rd out of 50 in the best to worst listing. Now I'm not from here, but, people, It's not that bad. I like it much better than some other places I've lived. I could definitely list more than 6 states that I wouldn't leave here for even if the $ was good. Even those mor...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

I was watching the weather channel this morning and they said the whole state was closing schools. They said it was two years ago today that they had tornadoes in that area and quite a few children were killed. I did not catch where the man was located that was giving the information other than he ...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

Sandi I hope you and your family are safe? I saw on the news where the state of Oklahoma canceled school today due to the severe weather. Stay safe and let me know you are all ok. They preemptively closed all the still-open schools in Tulsa and a couple close cities, along with OSU and RSU (state c...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

The one place higher ed 'gets' us - for whatever reason (bias of some kind), home schooled kids in OK have to get higher ACT and/or SAT scores than public-schooled kids in order to get into college.
