The weather outside is frightful…

So we had a day of rain with a temperature of 32 degrees. That means everything became coated with ice.

Then the temperature rose to 34 degrees but that didn’t help much.

There were over 300 accidents with a few fatalities and many injuries. The salting and brining done on the roadways did no good because the rain rinsed it off.

When I last took the dogs out we had thick fog, thick enough that I couldn’t see our back fence from the porch. The yard and sidewalks sported a coating of ice, albeit a thin layer that once the dogs got off the cement they were able to walk without slipping.

I’d say this winter counts as a seven on the scale of weird weather.

I hope later today that the sun comes out and we warm up to where the ground dries a bit.
