Ice Storm! (results may vary)

When I started this blog just over two years ago (Happy belated Blogaversary!) one of the first things I wrote about was an ice storm that came, delayed our flight to Utah, and closed schools while we were gone. (It was not as bad as the storm pictured above - that photo was poached off the internet.)

Well, we're looking at an ice storm coming in again tonight. We'll see how this one turns out. The forecasts are similar to the storm two years ago.

I made a run to the store to pick up a few things we might need. Hopefully power doesn't get interrupted, as we have electric heat and, unless it becomes a matter of life or death, the fireplace is not an option.

Also, power out and no school could be a recipe for disaster.

I'll keep you posted. If I can.

I saw those photos in an e-mail--some place in greenland I think. Can you even imagine? Didn't you lose shingles last time? I hope you don't have to resort to the fireplace. Let us know you're okay once it passes.

Wow, you have such interesting weather. You go from Balmy 80 degrees to Ice Storm... Notice I said interesting, not fun. Stay warm.
