The news here, as with a good deal of the country, is that we got snow, which then turned to ice. This is the winter view from my apartment (looking left). It was pretty, but also treacherous. The snow wasn't a problem. But, after it snowed, it sleeted, which left sheets of ice everywhere. Fortunately, the roads I drive to work are emergency routes, so they and the bridge I cross, were clear. And, to make matters nicer, a co-worker in the complex drove those two days, which saved a bit of gas. Not to mention work as there was probably anywhere from a 1/4" to 1/3" of ice on the cars.
