No chance of getting a vehicle out today.
The wind has been blowing hard since yesterday. I listened to the weather transmission from NOAA radio for our area, and wind chills are about 10 degrees above. I had considered walking down the mountain to see if they finally got the mail delivered, but I think I'll wait. Just too cold out there.
The same radio transmission is warning of black ice and recommending that people not drive here unless they have to. All in all, I guess I'll just keep doing what I've done for the last week and stay home. Years ago an ice storm followed by a long cold period kept me up here for almost a full two weeks. so this doesn't seem so bad.
