No snow or ice yet
We escaped the bad ice storm that hit Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and beyond. I was a little worried about it on Saturday because I worked until midnight. According to the weather forecast, freezing rain and snow would be falling when I drove home to the country in the middle of the night.
That dire prediction did not come to pass. The rain was looking somewhat opaque at midnight, but it wasn't freezing on the roads. Apparently the precipitation stopped soon after that because our roads were still OK the next morning.
I'm thankful that we were spared from heavy ice this time. In 1992, we had back-to-back ice storms here. I remember what it's like to live without electricity for a week at a time and have terribly broken trees all over the yard. My thoughts and prayers are with the Midwesterners who are suffering that sort of thing today.
