The forecast predicted snow, but the two sites I follow were a bit different in their predictions. One said we'd get about 3 inches. The other said about inch and then it would turn to sleet off and on. They were both right! We got more than an inch, we did get ice pellets and freezing rain on top of fluffy stuff, and the precipitation has been off and on all day.
I finally figured I'd better sweep and then shovel things off after 8 am.
So, after 330, I went out. It was starting to get dark. When you are reading, you forget things like weather and chores and darkness! Poor Obi was wading and appreciated the paths I finally made.
