The TV weather people in Kansas City are having a sustained freakout about the fact that there's an ice storm coming through town today.
When I woke up, I thought I might end up working from home, but I decided to go to my morning dentist appointment anyway. Turns out, it's raining outside.
Yes, there is ice on the trees and I saw a few small branches down. Reportedly there are thousands of people without power in parts of the metropolitan area, but we are not among them. I suppose there may be more branches coming down over time if the rain continues, but so far it seems like everyone's making a big deal over not much. Thus, I'm headed into the office.
I have concert tickets for tonight and there's no way I intend to waste them. Even if it means walking blocks in the freezing rain, wearing my heaviest boots and tiptoeing through the ice, I'm determined to be there. I just hope the weather doesn't have other plans for me.
