This sounds so matter of fact and, well, ordinary, doesn't it?
A wintry mix of snow and sleet that switched fully to freezing rain coated roads for area motorists' commutes Friday morning. Allen County authorities this morning have declared a Level 2 emergency.
There might be something more daunting than fighting the effects of an ice storm to get to work, but I can't imagine what it is. Having to cross a raging river then weaving through pillars of fire, maybe. After extricating my car from its block of ice this morning, I thought I was finally ready to crawl to work at 5 miles an hour, but a few blocks into the trip, I had to get out and remove two large tree branches from the middle of the street.
They should have let me write that lead: "Winter just absolutely sucks, Fort Wayne residents discovered today."
