Second Announcementice on tree

ICE STORM!!!  Columbia will have an ice storm starting by noon on Friday, January 13, and ending late Sunday morning, January 15.  The ground and everything outside will become covered in ice.  This is a very dangerous situation.  Trees can fall down, and electrical lines can come down.  Your electricity can go off.  Be sure you have enough food and water for two days, and warm clothes.  You are advised not to go outside very much.  Ice is very dangerous to walk on.  Also, please do not drive on ice; it is very hard to control or stop a car.  If you must drive, drive slowly and carefully.
