Well it has been about a week since I posted in this thread talking about the tornados and all?
Today we have been covered with several inches of sleet. It has been doing it all day long. Not just a normal freezing rain/sleet/snow storm but one
with thunder and lightning.
I stayed at work probably longer than I should have today and the drive home took nearly four times the amount of time that it normally takes to get
home. You could not see the roads what so ever it was as if the road crews had taken the day off. Usually they are pretty quick about this sort of
thing especially if they are expecting this type of thing. But they just could not keep up with it.
It was sleeting so much that the roads were covered again in no time and with sleet not snow. I cannot recall a ice storm that dropped this much in
such a short period of time. It was like a steady down pour of sleet. I recall some heavy duty snow storms but not this much ice at a time. We have
had a lot of ice in the past but again this seems to be more than I can remember.
What is bad is it is expected to continue until tomorrow at noon. It has been going on since around 10:00 am.
I told my wife and some others that if it is like this now we are in for a rough spring.
Now come this weekend we will probably have tornados again though I really hope not.
Just looked at original post it was six days ago.
