January 27th Sunday evening update: the forecast is getting worse, not better. I want to hunker down and hibernate for the next few days, but I can't. Life must go on. The kids have school, I have work. Thank goodness this kind of deep freeze only happens a couple of times every winter, and it never lasts very long.
