    Rain/sleet/ice rain has been going on and off for almost 24hrs now... it's just after 1:30pm on Tuesday.

    I'll have to go and grab some pictures - ice storms always offer some great photographic opportunities.

    How is everyone fairing?

    Today has been gorgeous - sunny and warm (for january). The next 24 hours will not be, however..but as a landscaper, snow is money.

    well, it started about midnight as freezing rain, then to snow and sleet, then more freezing rain. the temp has steadied around 32 deg. F and is still raining, so the ice has been gradually building. we'll just have to wait to see what comes to be

    Up to about 1/2" of ice on everything right now... all the 'top' surfaces are at about over an inch of ice. Woot! Branches out in the woods out back are all cracking and breaking. Wonderful sound, but nervous about the power lines!

    You have to break the ice all around the perimeter of the door and then de-ice the handle...
