Me to The ice is really getting talked up. I remember that bad one sometime in the late '90s. Montreal was closed down for a month or more. On a trip there in June of that year all, and I do mean all, the tree tops were snapped along the interstate north of the border, it was like a war zone. Our cabin and surrounding area had no power for weeks. That's when I decided to buy a generator. Lots of firewood that spring though.I'm happy to be in the gray zone.
It was 56 here at 10:30 AM and the sun actually peeked through the clouds briefly. Now, at around 12:30 it's cloudy, windy, 46 degrees and dropping fast. The wind should dry the roads and trees before they freeze. We have gotten off easy so far with this storm.My thermometer says 54 right now at noon.
