Giant Ice Rink

So we got less than an inch of rain yesterday.  No big deal, right?  Wrong.  It froze on contact and the whole area is like a giant ice rink.

Driving home in it was not awesome.  In town, it wasn’t too terrible because the roads had been sanded, but once I got out of town, the first big hill, my AWD kicked it…but it didn’t help much.  I was sliding and didn’t have control of my car.  Thankfully, by steering and driving on, it was ok.

I’m hoping to go to work today. While I can work from home (and I’m actually quite productive at home), I would rather be at work where I’m supposed to be.  All of the schools are closed because of the ice.  It just isn’t safe.

I know our area probably still hasn’t been treated, but maybe once the sun comes up I can drive to work.  We shall see.

Stay safe and warm, friends!

  1. Luckily, it didn’t get too icy down here. They did delay the schools for an hour though, and some of the sidewalks have been pretty slick. But, here I am at work. I wish we would get a could pretty snow down here, just one before the spring.

    Be careful out there!
