Slipping and Sliding

Pre-treated Roads
I wrote of the frigid weather yesterday. Today, it is worse. While not colder, it is actually 15 degrees warmer, we are besieged by freezing rain which is shutting down the entire area.

As I have been watching the news this morning about the multitude of accidents, I am thankful that I don't have to travel this morning. The roads were pretreated yesterday, but the volume of rain falling on the frozen roads has overwhelmed the pretreatment.

The airport is canceling flights due to the ice. Accidents are everywhere. It is a good not to have to go to work this morning.

I am looking forward to temperatures which are expected to rise into the high 50's by tomorrow afternoon, even if only briefly.

For now--be careful out there. It is a mess.
