Yesterday’s snow and rain became freezing rain by late evening This morning, I was woken up by the ice.
In fact, I just walked outside to take some pictures and it sounded like it was still raining. Nope – with the temperature approaching 40°, it was ice falling off the trees and power lines.
This isn’t terrible as ice storms go. Some of our softwood trees are bent over under the weight, but I’m optimistic they won’t snap.
Within the next few hours, this storm will be a memory here. Winter… well that’s another story. We’re just getting started.
