Last I went out we had a pretty good ice layer on the ground......now it's snowing! Hope everyone prepared to have a nice, cozy, warm and food laden weekend.

Don't go out and get on the road.

Sheriff says to stay home. Folks are starting to call in and they are having accidents. Take his advice and stay home.

Snow has been a bust so far.   Only about 1/2 inch showing out of the 3 to 5 inches and approx 50% of that is sleet.   North Paulding.

 

If it's sticking on the roads its gonna be a MESS in the morning as it looks like it will freeze into a solid sheet of ice.

Mother Nature likes to slap us around from time to time. She is laughing cause we thought she was going to give us some snow. :fool:

About 20 minutes ago, I walked out to the road.  Crunchy on the driveway with a little snow on top.

There were places where the trees took the ice/snow and those were just wet but not icy.

Does appear someone did go down my street.

DH has to go out this morning, please send your best wishes that he is safe.

Did your husband make it to where he was going safely?

Yes he did :)

Said it was slower than normal but no problems.

 

Thanks for asking!

 

 

Now, he just has to come back home this afternoon hopefully with no problems.

I don't understand where I went wrong.

 

Millennials are supposed to be selfish and duck out of work for any excuse.  How did I manage to raise two of them that insist that they will go to work against my best recommendation?  Even the one that totaled his truck on ice 5 years ago!

 

That they both made it safely will mean they'll try it again when it's worse next time.  :(

 

It's notoriously difficult to predict snow here.   I know that.   Yet I still get disappointed when they say "3 to 5 inches" and we get 1/2".  <sigh>

 

I think it was someone on here that said that we only get big snow when they predict it for somewhere else.   I guess they were right, LOL.

 

From the pictures I saw on facebook, it looks like North Ga got most of the 5-7 inches that was forecast there late in the day.

 

Sigh.  Until next time.

We have a hill in the back and the kids played all day sliding down it using all sorts of contraptions. The ice made for lots of fun going down but getting back up took them a good while each time. Hot chocolate and potato soup. Nothing until Monday so its fun around this place.

My dogs were a real comedy dealing with the front stairs and the rather small hill. Needless to say, they came back in pretty quick.

​No dogs here, but the cat wouldn't even go outside. She looked at me like I had grown horns and hissed at my husband when he tried to coax her out. OK, push her outside.

Two inside and one outside cat here. My two Manx cats are something else.....out and back in within minutes. Outside cat has a bed in the garage. It's their little paw pads that get hurt in this ice. Makes sense to me.....they seem pretty thin skinned on their little feet.

We've seen several cars going slowly up and down Winndale.
The worst for us right now is the driveway/sidewalk up to the door. Papi put down some salt, but it's still pretty icy.
I've been forbidden to go outside till it melts. If anyone is going to fall and break something, it will be me.

Our driveway and street are dry. So we decided to go to Walmart. We found out first hills in Powder Mill are iced over and cars are parked on the street and yards. We turned around and came home. I just saw on Facebook 19 cars are backed up trying to get into our neighborhood.
Retired. I only work 12 noon to 1pm.
Most days I take an hour lunch break.
