Ice, ice everywhere. Portland is afflicted with freezing rain today, and the temperature is below normal, which means for a city that has no ability to deal with inclement weather, it becomes a ghost town.

Stores are closed or closing. Starbucks is closed. The chains are shutting down. Even Powell's is closing at 7pm.

We, however, are not closed. The show will go on, at least that's the latest word--and I have to admit, I'm fearful about it. if as few people as I expect come out in the weather it is going to be a very difficult show--I will have to make up for their lost energy, and i'll pay that in blood. With a double coming up tomorrow, I can't say I'm much of a friend to Mother Nature right now.
