I have this handy dandy weather widget from the Weather Channel that puts out a thunder clap whenever there is a weather advisory from the National Weather Service. This morning, I booted up the computer, and sure enough, off went the thunderclap. Although wintry weather, and especially freezing rain, can make for treacherous driving conditions, these weather events can also paint the Columbus scenery. For the past week, we've had snow, and now, perhaps we will get the crystal coating of ice. The weather service is predicting up to 2/10 of inch of ice. Hopefully that will be enough to create some excellent photography opportunities without snarling traffic.
