Look what WE'RE getting...

For cryin' out loud, I thought we were all done with this kind of stuff. Isn't March next week? What's up with this snow and sleet and ice? I can hear it out there right now; it's blowing around and making all kinds of noise. If "COLD" had a sound, this would be it.
Luckily, the temperature tomorrow is supposed to get up to 35 , so hopefully tonight's ice will rapidly melt away. Though we might have a few power outages first. Check out our official "Winter Storm Warning" below:

A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 12 PM EST SUNDAY.
SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN MIXED WITH SNOW AT TIMES WILL OVERSPREAD THE AREA BY MIDNIGHT. THROUGH DAYBREAK... SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF ONE QUARTER TO ONE HALF INCH...SLEET ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO ONE INCH AND SOME MINOR SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED.
IN ADDITION...STRONG EAST WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS WILL CONTINUE...WHICH COMBINED WITH SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATION...WILL LEAD TO SCATTERED TREE DAMAGE AND POWER OUTAGES.
A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW... SLEET... AND ICE ARE EXPECTED. STRONG WINDS ARE ALSO EXPECTED. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.

We got the ice storm overnight.
But by 10am it's already started melting.
We're picking up Kathleen @ 1pm for a trip to Meijers & PetSuppliesPlus.

Hope you stayed in and didn't try walking on the ice -- our driveway is a sheet of ice with water on top of it... can you say SLIPPERY.
