An icing threat will set up over New England on Sunday night as soaking rain sweeping northward along the Eastern Seaboard meets outgoing cold air.
Rain, literally icy cold, will overspread much of eastern Vermont, New Hampshire and inland Maine. The onset of freezing rain will take place between late Sunday evening and daybreak on Monday with icing continuing during the day on Monday.
What will put an end to, and limit the impact of, this icing outbreak will be warming from the south that will spread through New England, even the far north of Maine. This warming and halt to the glazing will happen late on Sunday night and through the day on Monday.

This isn't the Democratic party of our fathers and grandfathers. This is the party of Woodstock hippies. I was at Woodstock — I built the stage. And when everything fell apart, and people were fighting for peanut-butter sandwiches, it was the National Guard who came in and saved the same people who were protesting them. So when Hillary Clinton a few years ago wanted to build a Woodstock memorial, I said it should be a statue of a National Guardsman feeding a crying hippie."
For many Democrats, that is too close for comfort, in a race for the seat held for so long by a Kennedy in one of the bluest states in the land. Other polls have showed the race much tighter.
Despite that, there is a subdued, almost dispassionate quality to [Coakley's] public appearances, which are surprisingly few. Her voice is not hoarse from late-night rallies. Even yesterday, the day after a hard-hitting debate, she had no public campaign appearances in the state.
Coakley bristles at the suggestion that, with so little time left, in an election with such high stakes, she is being too passive.
“As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?" she fires back, in an apparent reference to a Brown online video of him doing just that.
"Touch the peasants? Are you high?"
Most of the 16,000 contributors who are responsible for Republican Scott Brown banking $1.3 million in campaign bucks on Monday for his Massachusetts Senate campaign came from grass roots donors averaging $77.89 a donation, his campaign said.
“It went viral,” Felix Browne, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Republican told The Daily Caller. Help from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, both Republicans who sent emails to their supporters encouraging them to donate, helped bring in dollars from across the country.
Rob Eno, a Brown supporter and one of the operators of blog RedMassGroup.com, said he helped raise over $12,000 for the money bomb off his Web site with an application for visitors to donate to Brown’s campaign. The Brown enthusiast donated $50 to the campaign minutes after the money bomb began early Monday morning.
“I’ve been involved in Massachusetts politics for 10 years, and I’ve never seen anything like it,” Eno said of the grassroots involvement for Brown.
SCOTT BROWN’S DEAL WITH THE DEVIL
Will Republicans Sell Out To National Tea Party Movement Backfire At Home?
And If He’s Elected, Who Will He Owe?
“Scott Brown made a deal with the devil – and he should have held out for a better one…Brown’s embrace of radical tea party groups for funding coincides nicely with his willingness to accept the millions in television ads from shadowy out-of-state organizations with links to Karl Rove…”
Martha Coakley and the Democrat national Committee have, by their own words, acknowledged that Scott Brown embraces hard-working, tax-paying American citizens upset with the direction their government is taking the country.
Martha Coakley, by her own actions, has embraced _________.
(a) child-molesting priests
(b) corrupt Massachusetts legislators
(c) the ACORN/SEIU machine
(d) K Street
(e) all of the above
Hopenchange Paradigm #53:
Communicating openly and honestly with the American people, discussing the issues that matter the most to them, and earning their trust and admiration is the now considered "making a deal with the devil".
Skipping out of town to suck up to lobbyists, union bosses, and Beltway insiders is now grassroots politics at its finest.
LOS ANGELES (CBS) ― Police are looking for a suspect who yanked a gold chain off a 5-year-old boy's neck in South Los Angeles Wednesday.
The boy and his father were coming out of a restaurant when police say a man on a bicycle rode past and grabbed the boy's chain, reports CBS station KCBS-TV in Los Angeles.
Ten months into President Barack Obama's first economic stimulus plan, a surge in spending on roads and bridges has had no effect on local unemployment and only barely helped the beleaguered construction industry, an Associated Press analysis has found.
Spend a lot or spend nothing at all, it didn't matter, the AP analysis showed: Local unemployment rates rose and fell regardless of how much stimulus money Washington poured out for transportation, raising questions about Obama's argument that more road money would address an "urgent need to accelerate job growth."
"To avoid handing the Republicans bragging rights for making it a competitive race, she's got to turn it up a notch and remind voters why it is they elect Democrats in Massachusetts and why she's the change agent in the race," said one senior Democratic strategist in the state, speaking on the condition of anonymity to offer a candid assessment of Coakley's candidacy.
Sensing opportunity, national Republicans are beginning to mobilize. The American Future Fund, an independent conservative group, is spending more than $400,000 on ads slamming Coakley on taxes, and sources familiar with the organization say there's more where that came from.
Democrats quickly sought to counter, announcing that former president Bill Clinton will be campaigning for Coakley in the state on Friday and sending out a fundraising e-mail urging donations to "fight back against swiftboat attacks" in the race -- a reference to the ads attacking the character of Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) during his 2004 presidential bid.
Above all, voters a week from Tuesday should set aside all talk of what the late Sen. Ted Kennedy or his family would have wanted. The United States is a representative democracy. Positions of power are not to be “owned” by any political party, and cannot be inherited or handed down as if this were a medieval kingdom.
This election is about which candidate is best able to articulate and promote plans for sustainable economic growth, a vigorous national defense, and a limited government able and willing to remind its own members and the American people of the enduring value of our founding principles.
Buoyed by a huge advantage with independents and relative disinterest from Democratic voters in the state, Republican Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 48-47.
On the heels of this latest Rasmussen poll, I'll give the "progressive" anti-tolerance movement in Massachusetts 48 hours before they fire up the Race-Baiting Smear Machine and start feeding talking points to their foot soldiers in the press.
You know it's coming.
I received this e-mail from a Massachusetts resident and businesswoman (and I verified her identity through publicly available sources), regarding a phone call she received last night:
I got an odd call last night that presented as a survey on the Kennedy election. I was willing to participate in the survey but was left with a bad feeling when it was over. Today I am hoping to let a few people know. I saw your blog.
They identified themselves as McGrath [sic - see below] from Denver but I was unable to find anything on Google. The questions were obnoxious; for example: "would knowing that hate groups support Scott Brown change you opinion of him?".
WE NEED YOU...
We need you MONDAY January 11, 1:00 pm at the LOB 210-211 for two hearings!
DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A CLASS B Felon? No? Neither do we! No guns in any state or town building or “place”? That means state operated rest areas too!
Your rights have been taken by fiat in an obscure committee meeting without public input or hearing!! NOW those same anti-freedom ‘representatives’ want to limit you from public participation in government while criminalizing your right to self defense. We need to HOLD THE LINE!!
Less guns = more crime! Two proposed bills attempt to void your 2nd amendment rights and your ability to defend yourself and others even when traveling on our state roads!
See HB1635 and HB1654
These two anti-freedom bills create gun free zones in New Hampshire public buildings and The New Hampshire State House, the Peoples’ house! Only those who work for the government as a paid law enforcement (who are exempt) and criminals (who will ignore the law) will be carrying firearms or other self-defense tools in public buildings. Should these bills pass the rest of us will be disarmed or jailed as Class B felons.

The Massachusetts Border Alert Application: With its no nonsense icon of the state of Massachusetts with a skull and crossbones superimposed over it, this handy-dandy feature would sound an alert when the New Hampshire iPhone owner wandered too near to the Massachusetts border and that state's high taxes, hyper-aggressive drivers and impenetrable accent.
BOSTON — The widow of Sen. Edward Kennedy is endorsing fellow Democrat Martha Coakley in the election to succeed her late husband.
Today, our nation took a historic step forward in a quest that has spanned generations - to provide better quality and more cost effective health care to all Americans.
It's a tale of shocking ineptitude: CBS 2 has learned a series of missteps unnecessarily added to the mayhem at Newark Liberty International Airport on Sunday. The six-hour delay stranded thousands of people, creating extreme crowding and chaos.
The mistakes made at the airport give new meaning to the term "domino effect." It was a cascading series of missteps that cry out for action.
The sign at the Transportation Security Administration screening post at Newark read: "Premises Under Constant Video Surveillance."
What is should add is: "If We're Lucky."
That's because CBS 2 has learned that when an unidentified man breached a secure area at Newark on Sunday night, delaying thousands of passengers for hours, the TSA cameras weren't working.
There's nothing "shocking" about government ineptitude.
Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency.
The pointed attacks reflect a hardening conventional wisdom among prominent liberal bloggers and many Democrats that Rasmussen Reports polls are, at best, the result of a flawed polling model and, at worst, designed to undermine Democratic politicians and the party’s national agenda.
