3:15 pm - 36 degrees - thick clouds...
We are once again in between storm systems. The last round of storms brought about a foot of new snow, only problem was that it was very west snow so it settled down to about 5” of snow slush – looks like snow, but when you step in it, your foot prints turn to slush.
The snowflakes turned into pelting waves of freezing rain which left a ¼” of ice over everything.
Then the wind started to howl, along with the pelting waves of freezing rain, you started to hear the pop and crack of branches breaking all around from the strain of the heavy ice.
