Okay – we’re in the middle of a winter storm that started at 1 a m last night / Sunday morning, and goes until 1 p m tomorrow / Monday afternoon – so 36 hours.
The world looked a little wet when I woke up in the middle of the night, but the house didn’t feel too cold (not as cold as it would have been if the temp had gotten as low as expected), and things seemed pretty normal. When I got up and looked out, 7ish, it was the same – gray and wet, but not icy. Except that I got a txt from my daughter-in-law, not to go outside – everything was covered with ice. But I live just above the river, and she lives farther out, on the second range of hill neighborhoods.
So we were not covered in ice until several hours after that. Now it’s bedtime – and we’ll wake up and discover what the weather has done.
