My question for this week:
Do you like the cold and winter weather?
Today’s question is inspired by the mess that has taken place outside over the last 24 hours. It started with rain, moved onto sleet and freezing rain. Over night it was horrible. You could hear the ice pellets pounding on our house. The power flashed off at least twice and is still flickering now. No school today for kindergarten kid since trees and power lines are down all over. To say that it is bad would be an understatement. They said on the news that this is one of the worst ice storms that we have had in a very long time. My guess is some spots have close to an inch of ice on them. Imagine that on a tree or power line, it is not a good situation.
Here are photos taken this morning:
1. Front walk way is skating rink, 2. Ice layer on tree out front, 3. Another tree out front and neighbor’s car, 4. Grass coated in ice in back yard, 5. Tree making me nervous in back, 6. Ice coating wires and tree by garage
The answer to my question is that I admire the beauty of snow, but hate ice. There is no such thing as driving or walking safely on it. Now I sit here and worry about hubby as he walks out the door to commute to work. Hopefully a lot of people are home today and the roads are treated well. I also worry about the trees near here under the weight of the ice. Hubby said a lot are down just a block away from here (one on a parked car). It is going to be an "interesting" day.
