A MAJOR ICE STORM IS LIKELY SUNDAY. PREPARATIONS TO PROTECT LIFE AND PROPERTY SHOULD BE RUSHED TO COMPLETION. PREPARE FOR EXTENDED POWER OUTAGES FROM DOWNED TREES AND POWER LINES. HAVE NON-PERISHABLE FOOD AND BOTTLED WATER ON HAND. DO NOT TRAVEL UNLESS IT IS AN ABSOLUTE EMERGENCY. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL...KEEP AN EXTRA BLANKET... FLASHLIGHT...FOOD...AND WATER IN YOUR VEHICLE IN CASE YOU BECOME STRANDED.I hacked into the NWS computer and found the original draft of the advisory. It said:
PLEASE TRY TO AVOID CANNIBALISM DURING THE CIVIL UNREST .. IF THAT FAILS, DINE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FIRST
Tuesday update: although some rural areas nearby got enough ice to ruin their day, here in The Big City all we got was a glaze. By noon, most of that had evaporated (excepting underpasses and other light-free areas).
