More Storm of the Century

I am happy to report that we still have power, even though Round Two of this icy mess started about 2:00 this afternoon. We got sleet, which I have learned, is preferable to freezing rain because it doesn't coat the trees and power lines as much.

The sleet sounds like popcorn as it pings off the layer of ice we've already got packed down. You can hear it in the video below.

Looks like we've got freezing rain on the way for Round Three overnight plus high winds, so keep sending warm, keep-the-power-on thoughts our way!

Well if this is the storm of the century- you won't have to see another one!!
Considering you both grew up in the frozen north where it's not unusual to have a blizzard that brings 2+ feet of snow blown in by 30 mph winds that leave you unable to get out your front door and not willing to since the windchill is
-50 degrees, I am sure you can handle this! :-}
