After the long spell of unseasonably warm winter weather we have been having I was lulled into a false sense of security. But it looks like winter is finally here.
Last night we had a lot of sleet and freezing rain that changed at times over to just plain rain. This morning I woke up to about an inch of heavy, wet sleet and snow on the ground. Nothing that we can't handle, but still, it will be a pain to clean up. Right now it seems to be raining lightly but the storm is moving past us. So the first shot of real winter weather hasn't been too bad.
To my knowledge there has been no loss of power in the valley. The plow trucks have been up and down the road so hopefully driving won't be too bad. But take it slowly and carefully if you have to go out.
That's all for now folks!
