In for the duration

If  you’re in the Midwest, or the other areas that are getting ready for this big winter storm at our doorstep, you’ve probably prepared for being home tomorrow and Wednesday.  At least I hope so.  If you’re in the StL area or most of MO, you’re seeing the first round show up this morning.

My light post in the front is already showing the freezing rain in action… 10:45am

I’m going to try to remember to take some pics every hour or so to see how the icicles grow.  They already have since this picture was taken.  In fact…. hold one moment please…

Here ya go. Up to the minute… 11:15am.  See how the little cute frozen drops are longer? This is a better angle with the tree behind.  So fun. (IF you get to be inside, thank goodness for that!)

We get a little pause in the action this afternoon, then the big punch comes. More sleet followed right behind by a big load of snow. No better combination than that to bring our city to a halt, if my guess is right.  They’re already predicting power outages from the 1/2 to 1 inch of ice that will be on us before the snow comes.

So we’re in for the duration. And we pray for those that don’t have that luxury… be careful, friends.
