Icy EMB-120 in Seattle

Unusually severe (and localized) freezing rain affected the SeaTac airport yesterday.  Here's an EMB-120 that isn't going anywhere soon -- the pilot was wandering around it scratching his head as I took this picture.  I think they'll just wait for the warming weather to thaw it out, rather than try to deice it with glycol.

Trivia: I've flown this particular airframe SEA-GEG, in nicer weather.
