Looks like a classic Ice Storm from here to Maine right along the jet stream which keeps it away from MS/AL. Weird.

Getting ready to party here in NW Arkansas. That snow/ice line basically runs through my living room. Really hoping we escape the ice part and just have a ton of snow. Coming soon the first TW snowman.

It looks like some of the same areas of Kentucky and Tennessee affected by devastating tornadoes in December could be hit by a crippling ice storm from this system. What a wild winter.

Already starting the morning with a coating of ice on the trees and lines. Going to be an interesting day. I set a timelapse on my driveway camera that I'll share tomorrow.

Everyone here is so nervous after the snow ice cold apocalypse we had last year. The weatherman keeps telling them it's nothing like what happened last year but they're still losing their mind. The temperatures although not as drastically low as last year or still gonna be a problem for the plumbing and people around here

I am recovering from foot surgery so I can't go outside to take a photo but we do have ice and sleet everywhere with temps in the 20's.

We did not get it that bad but we had a pretty solid layer of ice and sleet all over everything and stay below freezing for about 60 hours.

53° and sunny today which is Austin's normal winter weather
