Thunder Snow and Ice Everywhere

Hello!

We have so much ICE here in this part of WI this morning! I went out last night to clean off the car before the overnight temperatures reached freezing again and there was inches of slush covering the car. I was so glad that I thought to go out and clean that off as it would be terrible to have that freeze on the car over night. This morning the cars were totally encased in a layer of thick ice - the entire car was covered in ice which had frozen over the top of the snow that had fallen during the night. After I got the passenger door open and was able to start the car - I tackled the cleaning.

The first layer of inches of snow over the entire car had to be scraped off with the ice scraper before it could be brushed off - then there was the ice layer covering the entire car. By the time I had removed the frozen snow layer the car had been running long enough so that the ice started to melt and I had a few areas that I could start breaking it up on the windows. It took me almost an hour to clean off the top layer of frozen snow on the car and remove the ice from the windows. I was so happy that I had removed the slush layer last night - that would have been even worse.

Last week we had many days of much warmer temperatures so almost all of the snow from the blizzard and ongoing snow falls had melted and we had rain/sleet. But yesterday there was loud thunder and in a few moments it started to SNOW! It just came down like rain - it was quite dramatic looking and within minutes everything was covered with snow again. This is how it looked after just a very few minutes - you can see that it was grass before this began. I wish that the camera had been able to catch the rain/snow pattern in the sky as it fell but no such luck. It was very beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I hope to have new projects to share this week! I am so behind - last week just got lost. I spent some time visiting other blogs to see all of your creations and hope to see more this week!

Wishing you a great day!

that's what it looked like here this morning too. We had those few warm days last week just to tease us and then it was back to winter.
I think we all need spring to come NOW :)
