I've got more snow than temperature this morning.
7" of snow
6 degrees of temperature (and that's up from the overnight low)

Here are pictures I took yesterday morning. They pretty well tell the story.

Looks like everyone is having fun, though I am not sure if Jim has snow or just a heavy frost. :lol: I have about the same as Scrivet (only 4 miles away), 7 inches of snow and now about 10 degrees, but last night we went to -4. Haven't seen it that cold at my place in 2 or 3 years, and don't want to see it again either. :evil:

There seems to be about a half inch of ice on everything. My rain gauge has about 1/2 inch of fairly clear ice in the bottom, followed by about as much of a mixture of accumulated sleet and pellets. It may get a bit above freezing tomorrow, certainly on Tuesday. That will be the next round of damage -- as the ice starts to break up and fall out of the trees in chunks. You don't want to be under one when it lets go!

Looks to me like Jim has a load of ice. Lots of broken branches. Beginning to snow. Vern

I had to take the trash out this morning. The trash can, being a fairly flat and off the ground surface, had something more like an inch and a half of ice. I had to hammer the ice off to open it. Here are a couple more pictures, one from this morning and one from about the same place after a snow storm nearly 4 years ago. In the snow picture, the branches were loaded down with snow but were still attached to the trees.

I will take the snow over the ice anytime. I sure feel sorry for that poor abandoned tractor setting out in all of that. just drop it off at my place one of these days, and I will give it a nice home with a roof over it, maybe even inside where it is insulated and warmer.

This was five years ago in the DC area. The whole Fed. Gov. was shut down. Probably the best thing to ever happen to the country. That's my 3/4 ton duramax truck under the snow.
