We are getting hit pretty hard today in the upper midwest. We are getting snow, sleet and now rain with very high winds. I sure hope that the power stays on.

We had about 75 today - 80 forecast for tomorrow, but cooler by the end of the week. We don't mind.

Blue skies, mid-80s, light ocean breeze. Down to high 60s tonight. This is the time of year I feel so lucky to live here. I sympathize with those of you who are freezing cold - and it is such a struggle to get around when the weather is so daunting. Drive carefully! My hubby and I have decided that we never want to be cold again....

wow, it is a skating rink outside. i passed a half dozen accidents on the way in tonight. the freezing rain put a nice coating down. then it changed over to all rain, which is far worse for a short period. a layer of water over ice is about as slippery as you can get!

as i got closer to the city most of the roads were just wet, but the bridges were still icy. thankfully, i'm pretty good at driving by the seat of my pants as the expression goes, so i just fishtailed a bit, then slowed it down every time i got to an elevated section of road.

You are sooooo right about wet ice. If you turn your head too quick it can put you in a fishtail.

It's been snowing here, a lot! We have about 2 feet on the level. I've shoveled twice and you can't tell that I've shoveled at all. It's supposed to continue snowing through the remainder of this week. Maybe we'll get lucky and have a day or two where the roads are closed. My deep freeze has meet in it, and my pantry is in good shape. I've got a well so liquid isn't a problem either. I'm ready.
