During Tulsa’s Christmas Parade we had a recurring question yelled in the direction of our meteorologists, “When’s it going to snow?”First, let me tell you what I do know. The most snow that has ever fallen in a single year was 29.6 inches in 1958. There have been years with no snow in Tulsa. There were no snowball fights or children on sleds during the winters in 1900, 1901 and 1903.Did you know the most snow that fell during a 24-hour period was in 2011?
Hole punch cloud at KTUL (Dan Lockhoff/KTUL)On Monday, our amazing viewers began sending us pictures of a cloud formation (or lack of clouds) they saw around 4 p.m. over northeast Oklahoma. Social media lit up with these strange and awe-inspiring images. This rare phenomenon is called fallstreak hole or hole-punch cloud.Here’s what happened: Last evening, behind the strong cold front we had a layer of cirrocumulus clouds over our area.
Growing up we used to call it the winter blues but now it has a name: Seasonal affective disorder, or S.A.D. It has more of an impact on some, and it can be severe with a significant impact on day-to-day activities.Most of us, me included, have felt the effect of cloudy days, like we’ve recently been through. Day after day of overcast skies can change your mood.Seasonally it occurs more often in the winter as our days get shorter.
Oklahoma is on fire. Watching recent smoke plumes from wildfires in Tulsa. Creek, and Osage counties. Our news crews are working numerous fires. Winds will decrease later this evening. Right now we need to all be careful. https://t.co/laHNBJXyy2
It's been an interesting week in Tulsa. Forecasting a high of 80° on Friday (and it could be warmer). Temperatures next week for Spring Break will be a little closer to normal. @KTULNewshttps://t.co/uPwNE0rV1n
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
