We had snow followed by freezing rain on Tuesday, with more ice and then a little more snow last night. I walked across the grounds at work today, and all the grass was covered with several inches of snow, all overlain by a thick cap of ice. In places where the blades of grass were tall enough, the protruding tips were rimed with coats of clear ice. As I walked over it, the entire ice layer creaked and groaned. It sounded almost exactly like an unsteady wood floor, and it was unbelievably eerie.
