When I got home from work today I could hear my weather program going off again. I have copied the weather alert just to let you know what we are expecting. I'm very glad I don't have to worry about going into work until Friday. The wind is what worries me more than anything because if it takes out the power lines....then we have no heat (among other necessities).
