They've cancelled the winter storm warning and replaced it with an ice storm warning. It's been icing here (and wouldn't it be great if all sorts of fondant and ganache were actually falling from the sky..??) since two AM. The roads are like a sheet of glass and this is going to continue till about 6pm tonight.

Can anyone say 'personal day'??

VeraBlue, that's what we had all day yesterday. From the morning until about 10 or 11 p.m. when it turned to snow. Limbs down everywhere. Many have lost power. I have a huge ice covered limb out the laying on both my cable and electric lines to the house, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed at this point! Be careful today!

after almost a whole dry day now rain again...

we had the workers on the roof this morning, they did lots of noise, now we have to wait and see if it was worth it...
but they are not finished yet, don't know why they stopped...

Looks like we dodged yesterday's snow bullet. Didn't escape the COLD bullet. Single digits today with intermittent sunshine. At least the wind has subsided. I thought we were going to join Dorothy in Oz yesterday. Stuff was flyin' everywhere.

Spits of snow earlier this morning but nothing to even cover anything. Nothing predicted in that department the rest of the day.

-40 -40
-35 -31
-25 -13
-20 -4
-15 +5
-10 +14
-5 23
0 32 <---freezing point of water
+5 41
+10 50
15 59
20 65
25 77
30 86
35 95
40 104
45 113
50 122
