Ice, ice, baby

It's warm up above and freezing down on the ground, and that always means trouble in Portlandia. January has a way of bringing the "silver thaw" to these parts -- ice all over everything, falling trees, downed power lines, fender benders galore, that sort of thing. And it usually takes longer to end than the weather forecasters predict.

It's 33.8 degrees Farenheit at this hour, and virtually sure to drop below freezing by morning. It's 33.1 up on the hill at Lewis & Clark College. We don't know exactly when the rain is going to start, of course, but 8 a.m. sounds like the consensus. By 8:30, it should be a winter wonderland, and likely to stay that way until late morning. Pulling the covers back over one's head sounds like a decent option.
