Our household has declared a War against Ice. There's a solid sheet between 2-4" over the whole city. Solid... as in you walk and drive on it and it doesn't make footprints or tire marks.
Tonight it's going to get down to 9, I think. It'll be a great night for long johns and extra blankets.
But it gets better: we're supposed to get between 3-6" of more sleet this weekend. There's a line in the song "In the Bleak Midwinter" that says "snow had fallen, snow on snow". I think of that when I think about ice on ice this weekend.
So begins the Ice Wars. Our dripping faucets and thermostat counterattacks...
