Icy Times

VA, NC, MD, & DC are getting hit with an ice storm early Thursday morning (Feb. 18th). Not to mention, Texas is suffering inadequate power grid issues. I am in VA. I don't think we have any Texans on here at the moment. Just giving notice that there may be a gap in availability for me if we get lots of ice and lose power again. We were without power Sat-to-Sun this past weekend, about 30hrs, total. The one coming tonight looks worse than last week's. Here in VA, we really only get a big ice storm every 20-25 years. The last big one was 1999.

Stay warm buddy. I’m in Texas and can confirm the lacking power issue is very real.

Good luck on that for us in the DCMDVA area, hopefully nothing too bad.

Hope you are doing alright kanila
Give me about 5 minutes after a post, I'll probably edit it a bit before it is finalized.

Currently working weird/long hours, so if I go dark for a few days thats probably what happened.

I’m doing fine. It’ll be 70 again next week. Haha.

One of the very few reasons why I'm glad I'm in Cape Canaveral now and no longer in Houston (where I lived from 1981 through 2006). Condolences to all of you already freezing your butts off (or who soon will be).
