A Tale of Ice and Snow

But no dragons. Game of Thrones reference there. From early Thursday morning until around 7 this morning we were under a weather alert which I believe ended up as a level 3 alert which means don’t go out unless you absolutely have to!

It started with rain, then icy rain, then sleet, then more sleet then even more sleet. No idea how much ice we got but this was, and in a few windows on the un-sunny side of the house, the view through my window/s.

Ice Ice Baby

Eventually the weather decided to grace us with snow to fall upon the layer of ice. No idea of how much snow but I’d take a guess of at least 6inches of the stuff. This is me making my way out to the mailbox. Notice how much deeper the shovel is compared to me standing a bit more on top of the snow. In case you were wondering (and I know you weren’t but I’m going to tell you anyway) I am also wearing three layers under my coat and two pairs of gloves on each hand. My fingers get cold very easily.

Fortunately today the sun came out for an hour or two…maybe even three, which melted some of the mess from the streets but not driveways. And fortunately too, we didn’t lose power. Phew!

Enjoy your weekend everyone – Teri ⛄

    We never got snow or ice (except on bridges and such), but it got darned cold: well below freezing, with wind chills in the teens. Since I didn’t have to go out, I didn’t. Today it’s already in the forties, and the sun’s shining in a perfectly blue sky. Happy Days are here again — although I’ll be happier when it hits the sixties. I hope you’re warming, too!

    the beauty of an ice storm is a sight to see ~ as your window shot shows, but such a treacherous beauty 🙂 Be safe ~

    USA has been snowed in, in some areas! Cold fronts! Love your photos but please do be careful as icy slopes and snow can be very dangerous. Take care!

    I like that artistic ice on window photo. Ice storms are beautiful, but make getting around hard, for sure.

    It’s been down in the 30s during the morning, but up in the 40s and 50s during the day. No snow here, just up in the mountains.
