If nothing else, this storm has showed us we need to insulate more in the attic and probably, definitely, look into getting the roof replaced. These killer ice spears are not a good thing to find hanging off of the house.
On a positive (non school) note, I did take some time today and make binding for Beth's mouse quilt. It is on by machine so I just have to hand sew it down. It felt good to fondle some fabric.
