The Ice Storm Cometh

Snow is fine. Snow was expected. Snow was the reason we all ran to the store to stock up on French toast supplies. You know….eggs, bread, and milk.

However, snow was not what we got.

Ice arrived in the deep south. Ice. And more ice.

Snow is beautiful. Yucky later but wonderful when it falls.

Ice is noisy, slippery, and not much fun.

But that is what arrived at our house.

Check out our street…..



We couldn’t get anywhere.

Sledding was awesome though. After all, sledding on pure ice is slick.




The first snow day was fun. Sledding was the highlight.

The second snow day was okay. Let’s just say we survived.

Tomorrow brings the third snow day. I don’t think I’ll make it.

you'll make it. Great pics of great fun. Do be careful on the ice though.

Is there new ice falling every day or are the road crews just not equipped to deal with what came on the first day?

I think we got about 16 inches of snow here today (no ice though) and we'll be good to go tomorrow. That is a benefit of dealing with a lot of snow and ice every single year. The road crews are prepared!

I hope you can go back to work and school tomorrow!
