The sun did not come out as the weather men promised over the weekend so we are still in the icy clutches of winter.... The last 2 evenings we have had heavy fog which gives us a very thin misting that turns to ice on top of that which we already have. Yesterday the fog lasted all day long and it looks to do the same today. I still am amazed at the fact that we have been able to keep our power throughout it all. Yet believe me I am quite thankul. I can only think that it is due to the fact that after the last ice storm there was much tree trimming in the area as well as some of the electrical lines put underground. The lights did flicker again early this morning around 2:30 am yet came right back on.
The snow we recieved earlier covers the ground still much like it was when it first arrived. Underneath it is a nice layer of ice. Walking on it sounds similiar to walking on an iced over lake. The Tempertures are to be above freezing all week long, yet with the absence of the sun this allows melting to occur at a slow rate. the one good thing about it all.. Maybe the groundhog will not see his shadow tomorrow.....
