I'm holed up here in a motel in Erick, OK, on my drive to CA, with the car, the parking lot, and the Interstate on-ramps coated with almost a quarter inch of ice. Traffic on the Interstate moving slowly. Saw an accident on the Interstate just near the motel between a semi and a pickup truck. The pickup spun around several times on the icy road. The semi couldn't stop. Ambulance later took the pickup driver away. I don't have any details.
Hope they get the roads cleared tomorrow so I can get on my way again. Tell me about Globull Warming. I could use some.

From sidney,...I think it's summer down under...do you know Fred?
It's 32 C down there,...I don't think ice is a problem at that temp....and I am stranded on the Southern California Beach and it isn't real warm either.... will be under 40 F tonight,...chilly the last few days with rain yesterday.
But I don't miss those ice storms back in my home country which is just north of where you are.
