Be Right About the Weather or Suffer
Summer: Its hot (sometimes over 110 degress F) its humid and sticky. Most wear shorts and short sleved shirts.
Winter: It can be below freezing with mountains of snow so come prepared! The weather changes constantly and isn't really predictable so be ready for anythiing. Some things that are popular currently are; abercrombie, hollister, american eagle, flip-flops, gap, punk rock and turquoise jewerly. On the whole pretty much anything goes.
Wrapping up Great Taste
This rapidly expanding Tulsa-based franchise is a great place to stop for a refreshing and healthy meal at breakfast, lunch or dinner. With a large menu of wraps, sandwiches, paninis, salads, desserts and smoothies, Camille's uses fresh ingredients in extremely tasty and imaginative combinations. Consider for example the "Club Nouveau Natu-Wrap" consisting of a honey-wheat tortilla, jasmine rice, turkey breast, bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and cranberry chutney; or the "Michaelangelo" grilled wrap, with its herb-garlic tortilla, grilled chicken breast, red onions, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, olives, thyme, rosemary, and balsamic glaze. Prices for most items run $5-$6 and ordering is done at a walk-up counter. The decor is very inviting, with a contemporary architectural bent in soft earth-tones and fresh flowers set in table-top perrier-bottle vases.
Just a nice place to live
I've lived in Tulsa for 27 years and I've seen it go from oil boom to bust, aviation boom to bust, and a slow recovery. Tulsa has finally evolved into a city where you can raise a family in a clean and relatively safe environment. It's a fairly large city without all the problems of big city life. There are relatively few major attractions, but Tulsa is working on that. The Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks, a suburb of Tulsa, is one of our newest great attractions and is growing fast! I personally don't approve, but the Cherokee casino in eastern Tulsa is fast becoming a MAJOR attraction. Finally, Tulsa has a project called Tulsa 2025 that promises to revitalize the city. I think Tulsa has a great future, and though I have to move to Houston for work, I plan on returning one day to retire here.
The climate is very mild, summers don't typically get that hot, humidity can be a problem but doesn't last very long, and the winters are never all that bad, a little ice, a couple of snows and it's finished. Spring provides some weather-related excitement and even though Tulsa is smack-dab in the middle of "Tornado Alley" we really don't get as many as the Oklahoma City area. In my 27 years, I can count on one hand the number of damaging tornadoes that have come through the Tulsa Metro area.
