News of the ice storm my part of Virginia was supposed to get carried at least far enough for Mom to send out a worried e-mail yesterday.  So when I awoke to the sounds of drumming rain, my spirits were high at the prospect of a possible half-day off: sleeping in, watching Campion on DVD, and finishing the hat that’s going to match my little mitts.

It’s out the window, so a little blurry, but there’s an inch-thick layer of slush in the parking lot.  (The dark red blob is Hester, the Scarlet xA.)

What the heck?
