Whenever people talk about the weather it means that they don't have anything else to talk about...
So the weather here has been terrible. It snowed a few inches last night. When I woke up to go to work it was sleeting (that's when the rain freezes and little ice droplets hit the earth). Then in the warmth of the day (the high was ~28) it started raining, but then freezing on the ground. The parking lot at my work was covered in about 3 inches of solid ice when I left this evening.
Tonight it is supposed to rain until it gets colder and then it will snow. We're supposed to have a couple more inches of accumulation. I'm not completely sure what that means. I know what a couple inches of snow is, and that's easy to deal with, but a couple inches of ice is a more complicated situation. Snow plows can't plow it and cars can't drive on it. Actually, it was good that there was snow last night because that was the only thing providing traction on the roads today. I think it's funny that the weather forecasters can't tell us what is going to accumulate. It's especially funny since a couple inches of rain is a lot different than a couple inches of snow as far as total water content.
Tomorrow's objective is to post pictures of my youngest son walking... he's getting pretty good.
