Our freezing rain has just started. Should last all night into the morning. Hope the power lines stay up. We shall see.
Schools were cancelled here as well, but all we got was a bit of freezing rain. It is to warm up even more as the heavy rains start in an hour or so. Still, one does not have to shovel rain.The wet snow is falling now - schools were cancelled early this morning. Going to be a mess out there - and I have an oil change scheduled. Great....
Still, could be worse. Texas is at -22, massive blackouts (up to 4-million people at one point), and with the wonders of the free market:
"Real-time market prices on the power grid operated by the ERCOT have climbed as high as $11,000 Cdn per megawatt hour. A typical price on the grid, which supplies most of the electricity for Texas, is less than $100 per megawatt hour.(CBC)"
