We have just had a Mother Of An Ice-storm, and currently still under warning for more to come. In all my time here, I've never had this bad. I didn't know what freezing rain was until I came here. Always thought they meant hailstones.
.. freezing rain is extremely dangerous. Falls as rain, but as soon as it hits something it freezes immediately and sticks.
I can't even get out to our garage. Yesterday my hubbster tried to move my car, but he slid right off the driveway and then couldn't get traction to get back on. My vehicle is a big solid Suburban with 4WD, and no slouch in the winter.
Here's some pics from outside our house today:
