WARNING! Black ice on Mall

6:35pm update: The curious part was when a City Public Works truck arrived an hour ago, called in the ice, and that was the last we saw of the City's effort. Fortunately, a Hook staffer felt compelled to stand there for an hour with a sign and calling out to pedestrians to be careful and then tossing out handfuls of our own stash of ice-melt!

DOWNTOWN–- From the Hook offices on the Downtown Mall we've watched a half-dozen people slip and fall on the ice-covered bricks in front of the Regal Cinema and the Ice Park. We've called the City telling them about the problem, but be careful!

I'm bringing my mountain gear with me today. The weather is frightening. All businesses and schools should be closed today. Call in the National Guard and declare a lock down.

People...DON'T LEAVE YOUR HOMES! STAY INSIDE. PRAY.

Be careful out there folks, I just slid into a ditch trying to get out of my driveway!
