Winter Storm, February 1-2

Before and after pictures of this week's winter storm. The first picture is after a night of freezing rain. If you do a close-up picture you can see the icicles hanging off everything. The second picture is the next day after a day of sleet. We never did get a huge amount of snow, maybe 1 to 1 1/2 inches, but it sleeted for hours and at least an inch covered the old snow left from the last storm plus the thick layer of ice over that. Schools were closed with many businesses closing early, or not opening at all! Lot's of people South of town are without electricity, and the city crew has a big job ahead of them, getting this all cleaned up!
