Weatherman says it's coming. Not much snow, but a ton of ice.
Murphy and I say "Bring it!" We're going to hang out until the power goes out, and then we're going to hang out some more. We'll be on line so long as we've got power, but knowing Allegheny Power the way that I do, I'm not thinking that it's going to be for much longer. Y'all take care out there now.
