As I blog I am waiting for the power to flicker and die. In a strange twist of fate, almost exactly a year later we are having another ice storm. At least for this one, it was not led up to by several days of below freezing temperatures, and we have so far been saved by temps today at 33 or 34. This afternoon before we made a Home Depot run I had to knock off about 1/4 of ice from the awning covering the MSV. The roads were still all wet, but if there were overpasses around I bet they would have been frozen.
Tonight it will get below freezing, it will just depend on how much more rain we get whether or not there is any more ice build up. Sometime tomorrow it will get above freezing again and stay there (just barely) until Monday night. Maybe last year’s storm has helped us as well. In 2004 the amount of downed trees and tree limbs was astronomical, that natural pruning has perhaps prevented a lot of downed power lines this year.
