We are 'lounging' out here on the Oregon Coast with squalls, rainbows, some sun... but no snow, ice, or outages! But we do tend to get hit hard in March. We shall see...Gasping at the big storm moving across the mid states and East!I think it's mostly due to the Ice and the remoteness of the Route between St Louis and Litttle Rock.
Of course, down here in Texas people freak out when a Cloud covers the Sun, let alone some Snow and Ice on the Roads. ( we do have LOTS of Flyovers and Elevated Roads)
But it doesn't seem to slow up the Freights, UP or BNSF.
Do stay warm!
