Ice, Ice, Baby! 

What are you doing at work goofing off on the Internets? Don't you know that the worst storm in the history of storms is HEADED OUR WAY TONIGHT!!! Get to the grocery stores, people!! We'll likely be housebound for DAYS, shivering and hungry, trapped by a massive coating of deadly ice.

Or not. Accuweather says lows tonight will be between 29 and 32 with "on-and-off snow and sleet with little or no accumulation."

The important thing, of course, is to get home so you can watch lots of weather reporting tonight on the teevee. It's going to be fun, like an old Christmas movie you've seen a hundred times before. There's the scene where the reporter stands on the highway overpass, the interview with the road-crew superintendent, the chats with people leaving Schnucks, the colorful radar maps, the drama, the helicopters -- will it or won't it COVER US WITH ICE?

God, it's gonna be so great. -- BV
