Ice, Ice Baby

The forecast called for 3-6 inches of snow overnight.

Umm...no. We got maybe an inch. Maybe. Then, about 9am, it changed over to freezing rain/ice pellets. That continued until noonish, and since then it's been freezing rain.

The result? A lovely coat of ice for everything. The poor birds are trying to land on the fish pond and drink, but all the rocks are slick with ice.

It's beautiful to look at, but I wish I could go get the mail.

You know, I was thinking about you this morning when they talked about all the ice in your area.

We got nuttin'.

Hope it thaws for you soon, but I think more is on the way.

Oh, yeah. It's getting worse even as I type. Sleet, then snow tonight, snow tomorrow and then an icy wonderland into the weekend.

Joy. I just want my mail. Is that so much to ask?

It must be a pain, but it certainly is beautiful! We are FINALLY getting the snow we've been hearing about for two days. Yahoo!

Heather said...

We have rain. That is all.

They say the snow is coming.

Also, they keep running a banner across the screen telling the folks in KY to stay off the roads.
