Stay Inside

I just got home, where I have a weak signal. It was a rather terrifying two and a half block walk. I didn't fall, but there were a couple of close ones. The ice isn't continuous, but it seems to have taken hold on about a third of the pavement and sidewalks. As a pedestrian that meant each step was an unknown: would my foot slip or not? The rain is still coming down, temperature is falling slowly.

If you're (narrowly averted crash there- a car skidded on the street outside for about 3-4 seconds) in the Corvallis area, stay inside tonight, go to bed early, and go wherever early tomorrow morning. NWS is still forecasting above freezing temps before sunrise.

It's bad. Real bad.

It took me 1.5 hours to get home on a normal 20 minute commute.

I took the back roads, trying to avoid the Beltline freeway.... but so did hundreds of other people.

It's 31 degrees now & looking shiny outside....

Shiny & sparkly= slick ice.

For all you crazy drivers out there.....

Ice is Ice. Slow down!
