December 8, 2008 – First No School Day of the Season

The first winter storm of the year headed our way last night.  As a result, no school for anyone and I elected to go to work tomorrow instead of today.

The storm started out as rain and turned to snow, but the rain lasted longer than it was forecast, so we ended up with more ice than snow.

The accumulation wasn’t heavy enough to knock power out, but has temporarily shut down the wind turbine until the wind comes out to melt the ice off the blades. But since the wind was at about 40 mph today, it wouldn’t have been spinning because of high winds.  Sun is forecast for the next 4 days.  It will be nice to get the ice melted off the roads and sidewalks.
