Mayor just declared the city here in a state of emergency. It started raining yesterday late morning. Freezing rain has taken down several tree limbs & power lines. There are over 12,000 homes without power. Neighbors across the street have been coming & going from here as they have lost power. Had our 91 year old neighbor over most of the day before her daughter came. Other neighbors with wood burning stoves opening up their homes as well. The whole community is coming together to help each other. It looks like a tornado came through. Just walking outside trees are creaking & cracking from the ice, besides chainsaws, it's pretty still out there. We are still expecting 7-10" of snow tonight into tomorrow. Seems most of the city has shut down here.

We've had this stupid fog/mist hanging over all day. Very low ceiling. I'm sure there's lightening, but I just can't see it. It's weird hearing the thunder without seeing a flash

I so need to be walking to work, but the weather is not cooperating. More indoor walking in circles...

One of the local radio stations posted this, because of the snow warning for tomorrow: "From 15 to 25 centimetres of snow and ice pellets are expected over these regions." 15 to 25 cm ~= 6" to 10"
