Any thoughts on the potential ice storm this weekend?

This site seems to predict chaos and 2 inches of ice but I hope it's wrong.

Hope it's just a few flurries.

I am very concerned when looking at the 12z EURO run from earlier today. Honestly I never seen max values being outputted on the EURO model before for Ice, so this is new to me. To say im concerned is an understatement. For anyone who understands icestorms and just how much can cause widespread impacts, all it takes is just .25 for power outages. If theres .50-.75 you are dealing with prolonged impacts, trees downed and extensive damage to power lines. Between 1.00-1.50 entire power grids become damaged. Widespread damage to trees. Roads impassable for days if not weeks. 1.50-2.00 power grids not only shut down but substations become damaged from the weight of ice accumulations building on transformers and pylons. Hard to imagine ice accumulating over 2inches. Once you get into these extreme values this is what you call a "catastrophic ice storm". Power grids can become damaged and take months to be fully repaired. So there is big time worries for central Oklahoma up to Ohio. We will be monitoring this potential and update when warranted. Anything can change, and if there is one forecast that I hope to god does not verify, this is the one.

It's still several days out though, so plenty of time for it to change. Or move north/south so that KC gets rain or snow instead of ice. Honestly you don't need 2 inches of ice to cause havoc though, it's impossible to drive on. Just get half an inch and you're finished.

I do wonder though... say it's a worst case scenario ice storm and the whole city is shut down, power outages, etc... would they actually postpone a playoff game?
Yeah. If there's 2 inches of ice, it'll be lock down for a while. Like, months.

Seriously, though, I have to be back in LA on Monday so if this has the potential of shutting down airport my plans are screwed...

Also, the look on Eric's face when Rich tells him Reek is the reason we have a shot in Foxboro.

You don't have to go back that far at all...hell, texas got 2 inches of ice back in 1978 or something like that. And most people were without power for 2 days. I repeat, 2 days. In Texas. Idaho has the record of 8 inches ice accumulation back in the 60's.

Im REALLY concerned with potential ICE STORM in our area this weekend! We live in the country, and ice normally means pontential loss of electricity on our farm. I will be one PO'd farmer/rancher, if I lose juice and interferes me watching the Chiefs!!!!

I have an old generator Im going to park by my power pole, just in case. It will run 10 hrs before it runs out of gas, so Im going to be ready. On a second note, also have potential cattle numbers roaming freely on the open prairie due to ice breaking the electric fence that is keeping them in the wheat fields, where they are grazing.

But, my main concern, is being able to watch the CHIEFS!
