A little snow

Here in the Deep South we get snow, but we also get ice, and often it’s layers of ice and snow. It makes travel treacherous and causes trees to fall on power lines and homes.

Last weekend, Winter Storm Izzy moved into the area where I live and brought a layer of ice, topped by a layer of snow, topped by another layer of ice and a final layer of snow. In between the snows, my carport looked as if you could ice skate on it. I never lost power, but my sister was without electricity for two days. My friend had to move with her 106-year-old mother to a motel after their street lost a succession of power poles that fell in a domino effect, leaving live power lines dangling all up and down the street.

Thank goodness the winter storm that was supposed to arrive tonight has moved to the north, but we are still expected to get a few snow flurries tomorrow.

    1. It wasn’t too bad. Just barely below freezing. A very few degrees higher, and it would have all been rain instead of ice and snow.

    1. Thank you. I didn’t have it so bad here even though I’m in an area that usually gets more ice and snow than where my sister and my friend live. I just stayed inside my house until it melted.
