Well, this should be fun

For the last week, the weather folks have been forecasting a major ice storm here in the Ratlands.  They are predicting up to a half inch of ice around these parts, up to an inch a bit further north.  Needless to say, the likelihood that a significant number of folks around here are going to lose electricity is fairly high.

Assuming, of course, the weather actually behaves as the computer models predict.

We were supposed to be having ice by now, but it is still around 35°.  I guess we’ll see.  The Head Rat and I are basically sitting around waiting for the power to go out.  We were thinking of driving over to my parents’ house (they have a wood stove) but my truck has developed an aversion to running in wet weather.

Like I said, it should be interesting.
