At least it's pretty. The extreme cold is moving on. It's all of 17°F (-8.3°C) right now, which is a huge improvement, and the temperature should reach 31 later today.
But there's about three inches of powder snow on the ground, streets, sidewalks and cars parked outside in my neighborhood. I'll have my own share of it to deal with and apparently, it's much slicker than you might expect; the morning TV news was a litany of car wrecks and slowed or stopped traffic.
Let's all be very careful, whattaya say?
This weekend and the early part of next week is supposed to remarkably warm for this time of year. I won't like the mud but nicer temperatures will make a big difference!
