already affecting dallas and shreveport. reports on jackson, mississippi this morning. about a half inch of the ice. we've just gotten into this event. i mean, look at this already. we're 30 degrees right now. moderate freezing rain. the ice just continues to built up and build up on the limbs. the wind comes along every once in a while, and you can hear this crackling going on as the weight of this ice certainly is starting to be felt on some of the tree limbs. we just started. i expect about an inch of ice on these limbs, guys, before all is said and done, and that's going to lead to massive, massive power outages across the i-20 corridor. they've already closed a bridge in harlzton. look at the big leaves. can you see the ice just dripping off of these. of course, it's going to continue to accumulate with the temperature at 30 degrees and the fact that the air is dry. the wind, the two inches liquid that we still have left here are going to cause major problems for the south. major power outages expected here, guys. hundreds of thousands. bill, it was interesting. the georgia power crew just got
2:51 am
back from pennsylvania with their power outage issue to come down here. now obviously have to face another ice storm. >> loofr overtime for those guys. being on those rigs, that's just amazing job that they have. good luck to you down there, jim, and we'll be watching the south all day today. as far as snow goes, tom, charlotte, four to eight inches. richmond, four to eight. there's a stripe through the mountains of virginia, north carolina, and through the big cities to the north, this is another high impact winter storm, and a lot of these areas we don't have any place to put the snow. almost another foot on top of what we have is ridiculous. >> you're going to keep us updated through the morning. coming up at the top of the hour on "morning joe" the speaker of the house reaches across the aisle to reach a deal on the debt ceiling. does this put the speaker in jeopardy, though? how might it impact the midterm elections? we come back here, and we're going to hulgts around the water cooler. it's an out of the world sky diving video found in a pig pen six months later.
