We had about 5 minutes of actual snowflakes followed by about 6 hours of sleet and freezing rain.
You can imagine what kind of scene we woke up to.
And I love how Northern transplants love to say that they can still drive here in inclement weather. Yes, I do believe your chained tires and 4 wheel drive *can* drive in snow. But ice? Nobody can drive on ice. And we just simply don't have enough trucks to pre-treat all the roads here. Ice pretty much blocks people in.
Jocelyn insisted that our ice covered yard really was snow. And she wanted to "play" in it. I let my kids get bundled up and walk carefully down the back deck steps. Jaina fell on the bottom step but luckily didn't get hurt.
I really hope this isn't the last of our "winter weather". I'd like one good snow please. Then it can immediately be Spring :)
