The next day as temperatures dropped, the rain continued and began to stick. Soon everything was covered with a glassy sheet of ice. It was beautiful. It was a good day to stay inside; not so good for traveling or shopping.
Winter weather was expected to continue through Monday morning so schools in the area were cancelled. Electricity had become a precious commodity. Not everyone had it. We lost it for a few hours on Saturday and for about half a day on Monday. That's enough to renew appreciation for something so often taken for granted and thankfulness for the good guys out there who restore it during times like this.
And then suddenly, it was over. Monday afternoon brought higher temperatures and soon showers of bits of ice were falling from trees and wires with a gentle tinkling sound. The recovery, however, may take awhile.
