Should this site go dark for a few days, know that it’s not entirely unexpected. There’s some nasty talk of thundersnow this week, and before that, anywhere from half an inch to an inch of ice, followed by gusts of wind. The last time we got that much ice was in late November/early December 2006, and similar conditions then caused widespread power outages.
We’ve taken appropriate safety precautions. We’ve dealt with this before, so we know what to do.
