Woohoo! What a mess!!! It's been "raining" ice for the last hour. Sounds as though we're being showered with rice. The sidewalks and roads are solid white. The ground is now beginning to get covered.
The wind is blowing again. My little flag in the herb garden is completely straight out and whipping about. Brutally cold outside. The thermometer says 24F but, with the wind, the "feels like" is about 11F.
My poor outside kitties are having a rough go of it. At least they have their "house" with the 75-watt light bulb in it to keep them warm. It's in a corner of the front porch, sort of sheltered. I put extra blankets in before the storm began and put some boards in place to try to block some of the wind. Doesn't look too pretty on the porch, but I'm not trying to get into Better Homes & Gardens today.
This is supposed to go on all night and into tomorrow morning. I parked out away from any trees in case the limbs become covered with ice and decided to give 'way. I also left the driver's side of my car unlocked as a precaution.
Should be an interesting night.
