"THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN LINCOLN HAS ISSUED AN ICE STORMWARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 9 AM TO 9 PM CST SATURDAY...

A MIXTURE OF FREEZING RAIN...SLEET...AND SNOW WILL BEGIN ACROSS THE AREA SATURDAY MORNING...WITH THE PRECIPITATION CHANGING TO ALL FREEZING RAIN BY AFTERNOON. ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF ONE QUARTER OF AN INCH OR MORE ARE LIKELY...

IN ADDITION...INCREASING SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS...GUSTING UP TO 30 MPH AT TIMES...MAY CAUSE TREE BRANCHES TO FALL INTO POWER LINES...CAUSING POWER OUTAGES.

Oh, joy! Is it not a coincidence that tomorrow will also be one year ago to the day that we got 14 inches of snow dumped on us, stranding us at home for 4 days?
