Ice Coated Landscape.....
I had to walk Barney this morning as he could not maneuver the back yard steps. We walked on the crunchy grass only and crossed the sidewalks with great care. HIs dog brain still wanted to cross the street to the neighbors but he doesn't know we would have to be wearing ice skates to be on that surface.
As I write this, we now have a lot of rainwater sitting on top of the ice. The ground temperatures are keeping the ice in tact and the water probably won't freeze until later today when the temperatures drop. Everything is shut down and yet my neighbor took off for her job at the neighboring town's grocery store. I could sort of hear her scrapping the ice off her windshield while I was partially asleep. I did see the town trucks go by dumping a lot of sand on the road's surface.
