Ice Ice Baby, it hasn't been nice! At least the National Weather Service has let the Ice Storm Warning expire for our area.

Stay safe, and try to stay warm if you're without power. The forecast for the next couple of days is for clear skies, but cold with temperatures ranging from below 0 as the low to the teens for the highs.

Here's the notice of the ice storm expiration
