We will be staying home and watching movies, it is scary just to see all the ice on our driveway, sidewalks and street. Sure hope we don't lose power.

Raining all morning & afternoon in SE S.D. It's so slippery out there you can hardly walk across the driveway. Right now it's bordering on 30F, supposed to get colder tonight which will make it a real skating rink out there.

Our driveway was slipperier than it was in town. We have 34F right now, not looking forward to your stuff, SB, though I envision a 2 hour school delay tomorrow.

55 degrees. Been playing outside with the dogs. Last night we put a fire in the fire pit on the front deck and had s'mores. Crazy January weather!

Just got back from work & it's just about 7 pm. The temp, is now 34F & really foggy. It's sloppy outside, slick in spots. Now they are talking about some snow coming.

-11 C! That's the warmest it's been in quite a while. Freezing rain in the forecast for this afternoon. I'm surprised how many of us here at DC are having to deal with that slippery stuff all over the continent.

Raining, windy, half of our foot and a half of snow has either melted or turned to slush... Lovely day...
