Well this last storm was one of those times where the cold air just hangs tough at the surface. We ended up below freezing here until about 11am with freezing rain. Some of it was heavy. Cold air damming sure is fun to watch in action. It was a good thing state college issued the ice storm warning.
The roads seemed to mostly stay wet but it was really accumulating on the trees and wires and other things. I saw some branches bent down to the ground. That’s the first time I seen this since 1994. We did lose one pretty big branch from the only tree we have early yesterday morning.
I think it was a good thing it rose above freezing. After the wind switched to the NW last night it got pretty windy. I would imagine there would have been many more trees and wires downed if there was wind with the pretty thick ice accumulations.
