Tuesday’s “blue norther“, as they call such weather events in northern Texas, left a thick layer of frozen sleet on the ground, and all over local roads. Driving was very tricky for a while, and most of us stayed firmly at home.
Today, things are warming up (well, to freezing point at least, and hopefully a few degrees above that by this afternoon). Melting ice is dripping from the eaves of the roof, and the road outside is slush rather than ice. Hopefully driving will be back to normal by tomorrow. I have to go out later, but I’m hoping to wait until most of the slush has been pushed off the roads by other traffic.
For those of you caught in this storm, you have my sympathy. Be careful out there.
