KWTX Meteorologist Brady Taylor shared the photo on his Facebook page on Sunday. As of Monday morning, it had over 17,000 likes and 18,000 shares.

The photo came as Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin declared a state of emergency for all 77 counties due to wintry weather conditions.

About 100,000 homes were without power Sunday as a result of freezing rain, ice and sleet that began on Thanksgiving Day.

The state of emergency allows state agencies to make emergency purchases, and helps provide vehicles used to move utility poles to affected areas, the governor’s office said.
