Winter has revisited here briefly, and it's actually a 'Texas Low' that moved up through the states. You'd think that would be warm wouldn't you, but it brings lots of moisture and then bumps into the arctic air still sitting up here, and that moisture changes to snow or ice. So we've had a messy 24 hours of light snow changing to freezing rain changing to rain. Just a yucky, cold, drizzly day today.
The storm never-the-less turned out mostly to be the storm that wasn't. Compared to the forecast of up to 10 cm. of snow again, this was pretty mild. And freezing rain when the temperature is rising rarely turns out to cause big problems, 'cause it just melts.
It was very patchy freezing rain overnight, leaving some places decorated in ice, while in other areas it really wasn't apparent.
There wasn't much snow, but just enough to cover the ground, with a strong wind. It left interesting patterns across the ploughed fields, snow accumulating in the furrows, and then everything covered in a thin layer of ice. Here are a few pix.
Looking forward to the next few days of warmer temperatures and sunshine!
