Winter, ice, mess!

Who else? With most of the country in some event of extreme cold/wet/snow/ice, etc.

A few days here of non stop generator use and trees raining down on streets, cars, wires, and houses from the weight of ice for 2 days building. Then finding gas stations that actually had power and gas to pump for generator life juice. Lines 40-50 cars that the hope of getting gas for the folks toward mid to rear line would get gas before station went dry, argh..

For 2 days, a minute did not go by that a crashing of branches was not in ear shot.

We did not get the snow that was predicted but we did get ice rain. It was raining yesterday at 30 degrees. Don't think I can ever remember that before.

New storm coming by Wednesday night and they predict 5-10. Hope they are wrong. Pretty cold here tonight, going down to 13* F.

Standard Michigan mid-February. High of 14 F, low tonight around 0, and 5 inches of fresh snow in the driveway this morning.

Not bad here

We had some freezing rain turning to rain so a bit slippery but not bad. Weve had a warm, climate change winter - ice thin all over the state. I hope we get snow at the end of the week as Im enjoying snowshoeing in the woods. I no longer maintain the trails so its a pretty good obstacle course.

Just ordinary Vermont here, which is to say cold, snowy, icy, dark and largely loathsome, but hey, it's Vermont, which means also that we have power and snow tires.
