Yesterday we finally got the "Arctic Blast" that the local media had been screaming about all week. (Find it funny when they refer to temperatures in the 20's F as Arctic...) It started snowing about 7:00 am and did not stop until last night. Overnight, the snow has turned into freezing rain. So now we have a layer of ice on top of the snow and everything else. Via Twitter I'm seeing reports of branches and trees coming down and of power outages. I took a few pictures outside my door this morning and also out my window. I hope to venture out a bit later today and take some more pictures.
