It may be hard to see this picture without clicking on it. (If you do, just click on the "back" arrow to return to this page.) We had freezing rain most of the day last Saturday, and on Sunday morning, it was lightly sleeting for about 3 hours.
Monday, school was even delayed two hours (and the roads were still ice-patched when we left for Des Moines after 10am!). Then there was a snow dusting overnight Monday. It left 3+ inches of solid-packed ice on the driveway/approach to the garage.
Yesterday was cold and sunny, so we both went out and took turns with the ice-breaker so we could get one layer up before it snows (expected to get 2-4" this afternoon) today. Yikes!
