While losing power may be an issue to some...the beauty of the ice on EVERYthing is fab! And as the ice melted it created big bangs and gentle clanging sounds.It's all about perspective. We can either bitch about the weather or en-joy it. Your choice.
It's especially "odd" that religious folks that believe that God created the earth and, hence, the weather - complain and thereby insult the Creator. For apparently God "blesses" the obedient with rain and good crops. Oops...a little different than sun and beaches for rain haters. But beaches don't provide food or water to drink!
