Icy Rain

After several weeks of temperatures roughly ten to fifteen degrees below freezing, it started warming up yesterday. I could hear it raining during the night. And indeed, roads would have been pretty slick today if the sand trucks hadn't been out in full force. There had been some snow on the juniper hedge beside our parking area, but tonight you can see the little drips of ice on the needles near the Christmas lights. It's hard to hold the camera steady enough for a night shot, but I hope you get the idea. I think it looks pretty cool. Literally!

Freezing rain? Are you in northern BC?

WE... have more snow... than you! And we live south of you for goodness sake! Now the freezing rain thing sounds familiar. I think we're getting some of that right now.

Nope. Southern BC. And two days later, the roads are still sheer ice, only now they have water on top of the ice. I'm glad my kids are FLYING home not driving.
