Our weather man is notoriously bad. He'll tell us it's raining when the sun is shining brightly. He'll say the high temp will be 70 and it goes to 90. One day he actually said that you never see clouds in the summer. What???

Yesterday he said that we'd get an ice storm starting just after midnight. When I got up with the dogs at 6AM it was raining but seemed like it had just started. The rain was freezing as it hit the ground. I hurried everyone out, back in and then back to bed.

When we got up again a couple hours later, we found this.
It was raining so hard and freezing immediately, that the dogs didn't want to go out.

At 9AM, as Rob and I were sitting down to breakfast, the power went off.
 The dogs were nervous and I was worried about facing days of darkness again, but the power came back on after two and a half hours.

The rain has almost stopped, but this is what the yard looks like. Wish us luck.
Why did that stupid weather man have to be right this time?

And they closed all the schools here last night for today and we haven't had a drop of anything. Hope your power stays on. Guess more is coming here either overnight or for sure Saturday night - right!

Tuesday night we were supposed to have freezing rain until about 1AM, then it would be 45 by the time morning commute rolled around. Schools had a 2 hour delay, then a cancellation as PENN-DOT issued an advisory against travel, effective until 10AM, then ultimately until 2PM. We ended up with about 1/4" of ice on the ground, but it melted during the day, when it got up to 50. I hope it thawed enough for everyone to go out and play for a while!

It's beautiful to look at, but I'll take our rain. It's been in the 50's and everything is turning green for the first time in a few years. Ahhhhhh!

While it makes for beautiful photos, ice storms are never any fun. We hope you all are doing well and have power.
