It fell last night in what looked like – at least from inside the house – beautiful huge snowflakes. In reality, it was sleet, a snow/ice mix.
The sidewalk was an uneven skating rink.
The road was a luge run.
I walked over the crunchy lawn to retrieve our empty garbage cart so it wouldn’t go sliding down the street, but the wheels got so caked with ice that they refused to turn.
Ah, but here comes the sun! Maybe the ice will be melted by lunchtime.
