more winter

When the wind brings the weather from just the right direction, the back windows of my house get covered with whatever the weather happens to be. This is ice from the freezing rain that is going on now. It sounds like little animals scrabbling on the glass—clickclickclickclick—trying to get in. The driveway is slicker than slick; the stairs to the house are dreadful. Good old salt, thrown down, bleaches the deck and the stairs as it changes the freezing temperature enough to melt the ice. In the morning, I will put down more.

Beautiful. We're supposed to get some of that nasty stuff tonight and tomorrow. But it sure is beautiful in this pic.
