The weather forecast is calling for heavy rains this weekend, unlike our poor neighbors to the west and north of us who are expecting a Major Ice Storm. Having gone through a similar event in 2009 where most of Fayetteville was without power for two weeks due to downed power lines and fallen trees everywhere (and school seemed to never end that year!), my heart goes out to the folks who will be hit with this most recent storm. I hope that wherever you are, you have good weather and a peaceful weekend. Stay safe and warm, everyone!
