So, Leap Day, 2012 dawns to an icy world.
It’s rare to see icicles hanging from the trees. Unfortunately the heavy load of ice leads to broken branches, of which we now have plenty to clean up. Temperatures are to remain close to freezing as the wind picks up, so I expect more broken branches.
Small bushes are also pushed down under the load of ice.
We will not get warmer weather for a few days, so this coating of ice will not go away soon. Back roads are slick with ice, some times covered with water, and driving can be interesting at times. A light coating of snow now will not help, but that is what we are getting. Gotta love Minnesota in the winter!
