Iced in as election filing draws to a close

SLICK: The street in front of my house is a hard covering of ice. Then it gets bad when you turn south (left) up a steep hill.

Filing for political offices closes at noon today for the partisan primaries. Judicial candidates have until 3 p.m. to file. Filing continues, ice or no, at the Capitol and county courthouses.

Judging by the looks of my street, I won't be able to make it to the Capitol to file. I wonder how many others are in the same situation.

I'm checking to see if any important late filers are potentially hamstrung by the ice, which covers a good portion of the state. There's no filer yet for House District 29, held by Rep. Fred Love of Little Rock. He's expected to file. Hope he's en route. Could be slow going. And I hope he's not waiting for a bus. CATA isn't running this morning. Will re-evaluate at 9 a.m.

Re a note last night: I'm still expecting interesting developments today in one race on the ballot this year. Stay tuned.

COULD BE WORSE: A motorist Tweets this photo from I-55 between Blytheville and Osceola, where he'd been stranded for about 90 minutes around 9 a.m. this morning.
