Bracing for the Frozen Wall of Water

Icecloud

The wave is about to hit.

Let’s see, how many different types of precipitation are there? Snow, ice, rain, sleet, freezing rain, freezing drizzle. Check on all counts. There’s even a possibility of thunderstorms. (My favorite is thundersnow.) I haven’t heard any call for hail. Small favor, Mother Nature.

For two days now, the warnings have been called and everyone is hunkering down tonight, expecting the worst. I know a lot of folks who aren’t planning to leave home until Saturday. We could end up with a foot of snow but the part of the forecast most here are dreading is the ice. I love the snow but inches of snow with a thin layer of ice is nobody’s idea of a winter wonderland.
