Nika swept in last night.
There was about 3" of snow when I went to bed before midnight and this morning looks like 6-7" of snow. But it may have been deeper at one point because this morning we're being pelted with rain and ice. Everything is getting coated with ice. Even the windows are getting glazed. This is the dangerous part.
The radar shows Stark county right smack in the middle of bright pink.
We can only hope the ice doesn't get so bad that power lines come down.
Right now I can't even open the door to outside - the snow is so thickly crusted with ice that it needs hacked up to move.
I hate this winter.
====== a little later =====
Tried opening the door onto the deck - no go. Snow really crusted with ice.
Did get it open enough to toss out some birdseed, though. No sense risking my neck to get out to the birdfeeder!
Usually it's a waste of seed to throw it onto snow - it just sinks. But the snow right now is like a slick table. And with temps only going lower for the next 7 days, it's not going to soften up anytime soon.
I'm going to have to get someone in to do my driveway as well as Mom's. No way can I handle this load.
