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.


  1. Gosh I can't imagine snow and ice like that... pretty amazing!

  2. Pictures just can't do some of this stuff justice. I passed some trees yesterday that were sparkling in the sun like they were cut from crystals.

    It was pretty awesome.
