3 Things People New To Oklahoma Should Be Aware Of

Oklahoma is a wonderful state in the mid-west. It’s perfect for families looking to raise their kids close to nature, urbanity and quality education, and plenty of fresh air and greenery. There are also opportunities for a higher standard of living, economic prosperity, and innovation.

A family moves to Oklahoma City and settles into the new space.

It also happens to be one of the most well-known states for football lovers, history buffs, and people looking for stronger community ties. There’s a lot to understand about life here, and you’ll slowly pick up on it as you continue to get familiar.

However, it’s important to know a few things about OK right off the bat:


1.     The Weather Is Generally Pretty Great

Oklahoma sees several different types of weather all through the year. From heavy snowfall on occasion to regular thunderstorms, and of course, tornadoes; you can expect to experience the full range of seasonal events here.

It’s important to invest in the right clothing for your needs, including winter gear, thick jackets, and rain-gear. But when the weather’s great, you can enjoy tons of college football games, hikes, treks, horse-riding, or even farming-related activities.

2.     But Be Very Careful About Tornadoes

Fun and games aside, Oklahoma is also often threatened by tornadoes. These weather events can be dangerous, destructive, and outright terrifying, making it difficult for newcomers to cope with.

Long-time residents of cities like Moore and OKC will be familiar with these vertical columns of air after living around them for decades, but if you’re new, don’t be alarmed.

There are plenty of ways to stay safe and protect yourself and your loved ones, like investing in a tornado shelter for your home.

You can get in touch with us for our range of storm safe rooms, including underground storm shelters and garage shelters. We offer free estimates, as well as on-site evaluations to help you find the perfect shelter for your new home.

3.     City Life Is Quite Progressive

While Oklahoma is considered a red state, on the whole, OKC is pretty progressive. If you’re a member of the LGBTQ community or looking for a fast-paced city lifestyle, OKC and other bigger cities are ideal for you.

Anyone and everyone are welcome here, especially if you’re a fan of country music, beer, and football. There are plenty of activities to participate in throughout the year and several travel opportunities too.

It might take a little getting used to, but Oklahoma truly is the perfect place to raise a family!

We also offer Oklahoma residents shelter rebates and discounts, so if you’re interested, contact us to know more.
