Default Flowers blooming & snow is still falling

Spring at the southern tip of Lake Michigan.

A light snow over a sheet of ice for this April morning.

Roads are dangerous. The interstate is at a standstill due to cars and trucks that slid off the roadway. Local roads are just as bad.

Spring near Wheeling. Can't state road conditions but thinking they are likely bad.

We got dusting of snow, better than the inch that was predicted.

They said 1 to 3 inches for us. Clearly didn't get that.

We got ICE instead

So we got 1/2" of ice under a 1/2" of snow.

It was blowing sideways for quite a while yesterday, not quite whiteout conditions in the areas with open fields but still pretty nasty.

Fortunately the sun seems to be burning the ice off the roadways already. Even the concrete walk out to the pool is now ice free, it was totally ice coated this morning.
