Hi, I’m Sarah McLachlan. I realize that the entire DFW metroplex is entrenched in an ice storm today, and that you are likely stuck at home on your couch. If you happen to be one of the lucky ones with power, please take a few moments and tune your television to the Lifetime network, or perhaps the ABC Family channel.
