We were supposed to get freezing rain here tonight but now it looks like more snow. Not the light fluffy kind but dense heavy type. Last year we had that ttype of snow and it brought down 6 trees in the property. Supposed to get upwards of 10" of snow tonight into Sunday afternoon. Plowed and blowed snow around here this morning will most likely have to do it again mid day tomorrow and then on Monday. You all stay safe where ever you are and drive safe. Roger.

My worry is tonight! We aren't getting warm enough to melt the ice on the trees and it's only gonna get colder! If we get wet snow, the trees are not gonna like it!

Well, it's not getting any better. I was hoping we would get a little thawing today, but didn't happen. More limbs coming down all over. Tonight may not be good, It has been a slow drizzle all day and it will start getting colder from now into the evening.. Right at freezing all day.. Calling for a 'wintry mix' tonight into tomorrow morning. If we do loose power, Aaron will hook the welder into the house power.

There is a lot of it out there. We are supposed to get it starting late tonight and all day tomorrow until late in the evening for up to 40 mm. which is over 1.5 inches. If this actually happens it's going to be bad. It thawed a bit today but the public road into our subdivision is a real mess. You can only drive about 20mph or less. With a thick layer of ice on top of that we won't be going anywhere for a while.

We've been lucky the the soil temp is high enough today to keep roads clear. But a good freeze tonight could make it a mess in the morning.

I have a set of the rubber ones with the studs on them. Haven't needed them for a few years but I think I'll go get them out of the closet.

It's just wet here in NW Arkansas, but I made a run up to Carthage, MO today.... Just north of Anderson, MO ice was accumulating in the trees and on the grass, but the road was good. Got to Carthage at about 12:30. Road was still only wet, but lots more ice in the trees and on the grass. Trees were splitting from the weight of the ice. I'm glad it wasn't a few degrees colder and I'm glad we had almost 70-degree weather thru last week.... I think that kept the road from accumulating ice.

those pictures remind me of the ice storm here in '08. i lost my power for 9 days and most people in the state at least a week. i hope things thaw out for you soon. people are still heating their houses with "ice storm wood" around these parts.

We got a dusting of snow over night with temps just below freezing. Once it gets daylight, I'll be able to tell what happened over night. No local news as yet!

Well you didn't loose your power obviously. We're get MORE snow. Plow, plow, plow.

I've plowed more so far this Dec. than the last 2 years combined.

What's with the 2" puddles in the laneway?

You need to build a grader blade. :smilewink:
