Never. Goddamn the wind is howling outside my window. Is there a chance we skip spring and summer this year altogether??

My house is incased in ice, my flag ripped off the pole and frozen to the driveway, and it's still raining and -1C.  :hide:

We had an ice storm like this back in '98 and it didn't end well....  :(

So far so good. Had a few power bumps/browns but so far we're holding on. It's actually warmed up a bit but still raining... rain supposed to continue through tomorrow and become snow at some point...  :P

And then 16C by the weekend...  <:-)

If it'll help Barth I will send you a picture of my fireplace on full afterburner.
