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.
