The Weather Outside is Frightful

Good morning blogosphere! Here I am at 2:45 a.m. freaking out. Absofuckinglutely freaking out.

There is rain outside, lots of rain. There is also, from what I can see, a really heavy layer of ice on the roof (my bedroom window looks out onto a portion of the roof) and the trees outside. Occasionally, there are really scary sounds from outside. . . like trees breaking. At one point, after scary noises, I toured the entire house checking for damage and found none.

The fucking satellite TV isn't working, probably the dish is iced over. All the radio stations seem to be playing syndicated nationwide programming without any local coverage. So here I am on the internet, looking for peace and calm and a friend to help me calm down here.

I am all fucking alone here people. All alone. Middle of the night. Scared. Everything looks worse in the middle of the night. I'm a big girl. I can take care of myself. Except in the middle of the night. When the scary noises happen.

Praying for sunrise here people. Praying for sunrise. . .

Did you make it? I just got home from having to drive the kids to the bus stop. The roads/sidewalks are a sheet of crunchy ice, but it's just raining now.

Of course, they wanted to know why school wasn't canceled.

When the weather improves, look into getting a dish warmer. It's an electric widget you can attach to the dish that acts as a defroster. Some also try using dish covers - the cover is peaked in such a way to prevent snow accumulations, like a steep roof, but I don't know how much use that would be in an ice storm.
