It stayed above freezing most of yesterday and stopped raining, so the icicles got smaller again. Phew, they were turning into monsters.

Colder today. Currently -10C (14F) going up to -8C and then down to -11C Monday morning. It's overcast, but not raining or snowing or any of that stuff.

Those icicles are so dangerous. It's why we always told the kids to walk in the street. Like you, we have sloped roofs and the edges are lined with some huge and heavy ones. When they break off, they can kill if you are under one. Scary stuff!

We knock them off with the snow shovel. It has a longer handle than a broom. But right now, neither one of us is feeling well enough to be swinging the snow shovel around. Most of the icicles are gone and the ones that are left aren't very big.

Right now our temps are in the high 30's. It was raining really hard yesterday. Spike too Teddy out for his walk. Weather doesn't stop Spike. Teddy HATES the rain. When they showed up here, he was soaking. I got a big fluffy towel and rubbed him dry. Today it is going to be a bit colder, but tomorrow is going to be bitter cold!

It's a sheet of ice and cold. The snow we are getting is not going to help the ice situation.

It will just cover up the ice and make getting around that more difficult and dangerous. :Be careful! angel:

I like how the weather guide says today's temps will be (betw/ -10 and +6) and the temp is already Minus 12. Accurate reporting there weather people.

I love it when they say there's a 50% chance of snow and it's already snowing like crazy. Look out a window, I would think that now it's 100% chance!!!
