    Absolutely not, Moss --- a very THIN covering of mostly frozen rain in very limited places... roofs of houses seem to catch a thin layer, and USUALLY it's gone by 10 AM or so when exposed to the sun.

    I have ONE SPOT in my backyard where, possibly the wind swirled just right or something, and there's about a tenth of an inch of "whatever" (frozen sleet, probably), but if I take a picture of that and post it, it would be easy to assume the whole back yard is that way.

    Here's one of my "snow" places...

    BUT, yeah... sissies. SISSIES, I say! Oh, the shame of it all.

    Ugh. We have had a week of mostly above freezing weather. Everything is slick as snot outside. Why can't it just stay between 15 and 20F - let's say -6 to -10 for you in the rest of the world.

    We have had that for the past 2 weeks, GJ. And yes, icy like crazy, but the roads are dry, finally. Parking lots and sidewalks are horrible to walk on, and I fear for my brittle bones when I go out.

    Turned cold again Sunday night. Went down to -25C (-13F) overnight, and the high yesterday was about -10C (14F). Windchill was much lower than that.

    Supposed to be a high of -1C (30F) today, and back down to a high of -15C (5F) tomorrow. I hate the rollercoaster temps like this! Totally agree with you, Jed, that a nice steady temp of about -10C would be good. No risk of freezing rain, and the cars start without being plugged in.

    And I am ever so thankful that we haven't had any fresh snow in at least 2 weeks! We really were running out of places to put it, although the melt we had has certainly reduced the piles a great deal.

    But, here we are, on the eve of "the big freeze", and people are going nuts!

    Folks parked by the roadside selling firewood for $35 a small bundle -- probably equivalent to about $1000 a cord.

    Gas stations have long lines out to the street.

    Grocery stores are BUSY, people buying food in preparation, it would seem, for 2 months underground!

    And this is TEXAS!!!! Supposed to get down to 28 with some freezing rain, and people are acting like it's the end of the world.

    HOWEVER --- it's GREAT for the economy!!! Maybe that's why the weatherguessers do this occasionally --- they hype "the big freeze" in hopes of spurring on the economy, and pulling Obama's butt out of the fire.

    Gee, I miss global warming.
    Freezing rain in Houston? So hell froze over huh?
