No problem here. We got a little freezing rain Monday morning but it melted off in the afternoon. Yesterday I was riding around with Toby and the thermometer in hos car said that it was 65 outside.

The dividing line has floated back and forth from here to points north. Just fifty miles north there are lines and trees down. Yesterday afternoon the temperature dropped ten degrees in about five minutes, and another ten in the next hour, but it's still above freezing. That could change tomorrow though, but it looks like were relatively safe.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

We've had nothing yet in Indiana. Supposed to get some snow and sleet tonight and tomorrow, but nothing major. How about Will? Who's in Nebraska?

Fox News Channel has a reporter stationed in Rockford, not too far north of Peoris, who's been yammering about the freezing rain there. Then they pan to a shot of some branches with about a quarter inch of ice hanging on them. I'm with you, Greg. *shrug*

We got a little bit of ice here but nothing like we got last winter. Allmost two weeks without power and one six inch hole in the roof from a branch. I hope we don't see that again anytime soon. I had five big wallnuts cut down around the house two weeks before we got that ice. If we didn't have that done when we did, Im pretty sure that we would be living in a new house right now and maybe a new shop too.......... Give me snow but keep the ice.....

Half inch of ice, then about 2" of snow/sleet/freezing rain yesterday. I stayed home from work yesterday...'cause I could, but everything is good today.
