Had lot of snow today and suppose to snow all week. Snow banks are getting pretty crazy haha. I should put a gopro on my car and drive around on one of my days off and put it on Youtube. May as well wait till March or April though, that's when we'll probably double the snow we have now.
It's been an odd winter. Was driving to work today and had to drive through snow and occasionally some large puddles of standing water. The water then froze over the right side of my car making it impossible to see out the right passenger window
Freezing rain is basically rain, but then it freezes. It creates an ice layer on top of everything. Sometimes it will get mixed in with snow so it makes more of an ice crust. Really nasty stuff as it's usually permanent for the rest of the season. You can't really take that stuff off of anything without using a large amount of heat or force that would damage whatever you're taking it off of. For the car, that means running it for an hour or so to at least get the worst of it off.
My solar panels have been out of commission since around December as we got some around that time. Well they still produce, but only enough to trickle charge the battery.
When I was a kid I remember after freezing rain it was kind of fun to walk right on top of the snow as it had a thick ice layer that was strong enough to support my weight without sinking in. Could cut out chunks and use it as fort building material.
iT IS A FINGER NUMBING 60 DEGREES WHERE I LIVE YEAR AROUND!
I have always wondered how people where I live keep from slipping and sliding all over the roadways!
Walking down the street is just perilous! I mean what with the weather and all I don`t under stand how people keep from twisting an ankle while they walk what with the dry sidewalks and all!
I mean to tell you it is a real mess out here in California!
Why just yesterday I had to clean the sunshine and warmth off my windsheild!! Brr it`s just terrible!!!
