This is what it looked like at 7am this morning. We had thunderstorms yesterday that turned into freezing rain! I laid in bed and heard in hit my windows in my bedroom (which now have a nice sheet of ice on the top part!).
It has now turned into falling ice! The reports that are out and about said it now hurts when it hits your skin. Em is home today, of course, and when I looked at the weather forecast, there is no way I would be insane enough to try to drive to work. We are talking 2+ hours just to drive there, and then I would have to come home, which this afternoon they are predicting at least 6 to 10 inches of snow!!! It is now 21 degrees outside now, but with the wind chill it is 12 degrees.. and dropping. They said it will drop below 19 degrees outside. It is supposed to snow on through the day and night.
They said we are going to have thunder snow! Never had that before. The visibility will be greatly diminished, like 1/2 mile or less. The crews putting out salt on the roads said it is sleeting faster than they can put the salt out so the sleet is covering up what they are doing.
