We have sleet and freezing rain right now. Our neighbor cleared our walk as well as his own for which we thanked him profusely and told him that if he needed salt we have a good supply. We had decided to postpone our grocery shopping back when the weather people were predicting just rain. If we were likely to run out of anything we could have advanced our schedule as easily as delay it. Looking at what is happening down south and west, we are grateful that our experience isn't as bad (so far.) This mess should turn to rain later today. Thankfully, we aren't in an area where the melting slush and following rain will produce flooding on a scale that would affect us. Tomorrow should produce snow flurries but nothing more.
The electricity went out for about three hours. The ice did some damage somewhere. But everything is back on now.
