Ice Storm in Alaska

Can you believe the ice storm we are having here in the Interior? I had to go to work this morning only to find half of my coworkers didn't show up. We were told to go home at 1:00PM and not to come back to work tomorrow.

It was a wild ride home afterwords too. I made it almost all the way home only to get stuck on the road 100 yards from my driveway. My neighbor helped me get my truck out of the road. The real question is do I want to leave my house tomorrow?

So did you leave the house today? It was just as bad here in south central.

Sounds like it's time for some tire chains.

Chains are alright till you break a link then you run the risk of damage to your vehicle.

Ice Storm

I am semi retired so did not have to travel the roads, but we were clear on the main roads by Tuesday. We got a lot of freezing rain Monday and Tuesday but no power outages, lights flickered on and off a lot but no loss. Maybe it was good that no one was on the roads and contending with the ice. It is what it is here in the winter and some of the worst weather we get is when it warms up and then freezes. But we live with it and hope for colder weather this week and some snow to go along with it for the sno-gos.
