As for today, it wasn't scenic at all! After yesterday's forecast storm and heavy snow that never arrived, it did finally snow an inch or so overnight. And then the rain started. It just formed a crust over the snow, so that wasn't bad, and I was out to take the mutt for her semi-annual grooming in the morning. But it has continued to rain all day, and the temperature has remained below freezing - the result is ice. So now the ice is accumulating on the twigs and branches, though so far not to any serious extend. We'll see how much it continues overnight and what the ice looks like in the morning. Further south it was apparently much worse - perhaps because commuters don't expect to have to slow down for something like this!
