Ice, Ice Baby
Once again our area managed by some fluke of nature and topography to dodge the ice storm bullet. Once again the 'freeze line' was only a mere 20 miles to the north of us.
All we've got the past 2 days has been lots of cold, almost freezing rain. Which is icky enough and makes one just want to pull the covers up and stay in bed.
But I feel for my neighbors to the north, they all are getting hit again with a thick layer of ice, wreaking havoc on the infrastructure that had barely recovered from the last major ice storm only 11 months ago.
Hmm, 2 big ice storms in a year-the first in January this one in December...I blame Algore.
