First it was amazingly cold for this time of year; now it's been raining pretty steadily for twenty-four hours. Luckily for us, the temperature went way up first.
It's in the mid-50s now. If it was still so cold, we'd have had a healthy snow. Right at freezing, it is likely we would have had an ice storm. It's the right time of the year for them. I don't much care for snow and heavy snowfall is a problem; I'm not a fan of heavy, days-long rain. But ice? It's a nightmare. A disaster. I'm happy we missed it this time -- but it's not over yet.
