Ice Age

OK, so it doesn't look like much here, but underneath the thin dusting of snow is a coating of slick ice. The picture you're not getting is me driving home last night, over 20 miles of country roads, in freezing sleet. I think my top speed was 38mph, but mostly I kept it under 35. I was determined to get home after work. The question is, would I have been as eager if I were heading to work?

    We are glad to share our ice with you all up north. We have an over abundance of ice down here right now.

    Hmmm...for a minute there I thought I was looking at all our neighbor's yards. Our Big City took a pretty good hit with sleet, ice and snow.

    Well, you didn't go to work today, did you?
    Why don't you run out in the morning and take a picture of those bikes at the fence before the ice melts.
    If we get any ice or snow here I'll take a picture for bloggers to see. There is some coming in now about thirty miles north of here.
