Last Nights Weather

I don't think this qualifies as snow. Being from the north, I would just call this ice.

It looks pretty, until you slip and slide in it, of course I wouldn't do that.. I'm great on my feet. Not clumsy at all!! Okay, well there was this one time, at band camp, oh sorry wrong story.. Anyways, I was in Boise Idaho, in the middle of winter, waiting for my bus to leave. We were stuck due to the weather. Me and some other people decided to go to the Chinese place around the corner and order some take out. On the way back, guess who slipped and landed flat on her butt. Yup that was me. I bring this up because I almost did it again taking these pictures..

The branch on the ground is from the last ice storm. The tree got weighed down so much the branches were nearly touching the ground. The dog, thinking it was a new play toy snapped that big branch off..

As you can see, my car is still all froze. There is a sheet of ice surrounding it as well..

Yuck, I hate ice. I'll take a foot of snow anyday over ice. Be careful!

We got snow mixed with sleet, all together about 6 or 7 inches, here in east Missouri. Northeast that is...southeast MO was hit hard with ice. We dodged the ice bullet this time! Snow is fine with us, we can manage to get around on that...but ice...forget about it!
