Well, those of us in TX are confused to the white freezing things falling from the sky. Ok that's not true. We know about snow, but we get ice storms. Since Thursday this week it's been a serious situation. Roads and bridges are slick with ice which will become black ice by Sunday evening. I was hearing sleet and freezing rain hit my home for a full day. Where we are in need of the rain, freezing rain is not what we really need. It's bad enough that we as a state can't handle an inch of snow in most parts, let alone any form of icing. It's pretty humorous to watch but terrifying to be in. So far the people that live around me have been pretty sane. No crazy tire squealing, or swearing coming from the road. Though there have been power outages in the area, we have not been effected. But needless to say it's been pretty damn cold. Last night with a wind chill of -5F I was not leaving the comfort of my bed until it was at least 10F. This ice should be melted fully by this up coming Thursday. Lots of melting and re-freezing until then. Esp for my stairs, which face north, and are completely in the shade. And I forgot to stock up on some rock salt. Ice and those stairs plus me trying to walk down them equals my back aching. Last three times it iced I have fallen down them smacking my back into the stone steps every time. Yeah not this time!!! I am bundled up with kitteh in my lap, with a hubby by my side under blankets on the couch.
