Ice, Ice Baby

See this? This is the little symbol sitting beside every segment of our hour-by-hour forecast for the next two days. The National Weather Service says it could be the worst ice storm we’ve had in ten years. Did I mention I work in utilities? Yeah. Exactly. In just a few hours I should have a pretty good idea of just how pissed at us Mother Nature is. And what the rest of my week is going to be like.

Dude, I’m am SOOOOO over winter.

Brrr! I don't think I could live anywhere it got that cold. I don't mind winter too much here, as long as I have the fire going! LOL.

At the moment we are still feeling the heat so your ice looks nice and refreshing!

Did I mention this is the part of winter I DON'T like? Ice is meant to be small,circular or rectangular in shape and generally only reside in a glass with ice tea
or drink of your choice...NOT ON THE ROAD OR POWER LINES!
I don't know exactly what you do but I will pray for you anyway!

UGH, the ice is indeed everywhere. I stayed home from work and am thankful to still have electricity.

I HATE COLD N ICE!! did I tell you that already??? We are lucky to be in the south for the winter. Had enough of snow,cold and ice living in the Northeast for many years, to last a lifetime. Only go north in the spring,summer n fall. Good luck, stay warm and safe.

Nearly hit 80 here today, Hula. Wearing t-shirt, shorts and sandals and contemplating whether or not I want to throw burgers on the grill. Maybe steak kabobs Can't decide.
