Then, after dark, Luna (storm name dropper that I am) blew through leaving a lumpy glaze of crunchy ice over everything. It's very treacherous out there so be careful driving on roads that aren't salted!
Good thing I don't really have to go anywhere today. Hopefully the temps will rise as predicted (up to 40s) and the sporadic rains will melt the ice on the roads. As for the sitting snow under the ice, I'm sure it will take the most of the 3-day warm spell to also melt away (good grief 57F Tue & 58F Wed then plummet back to 20F on Fri - I'm really not enjoying climate change.).
This week looks to be busy what with needing some professional help with lots of household projects: replace innards of the main floor toilet, figure out why the water softener is leaving salt spots in all the sinks, clean/inspect furnace, and the chain on the garage door opener suddenly has a lot of slack which interferes with operation so now that'll have to be fixed to! Jeeze, everything seems to happen at once. Good thing I keep a repair fund for things I can't do myself. Thankfully I've seldom had to use it for a good long time so it's really topped up.
Meanwhile, down in the basement, the window boxes of greens are coming right along under the lights.
