December 15, 2008 – Ice/Snow/Sleet

We’ve had a dicey forecast for a while.  We were advertised as the dividing line between up to 3/4 of an inch of ice or 6-10 inches of snow.  I’ll always take the snow when left those to those choices.

We ended up getting a glazing of ice, then a matrix of about 2 inches of ice pellets and sleet, topped off with a little snow.  Although not very deep, it was like shoveling sand or granulated sugar – the ice pellets were very heavy.  Even the tractor, which never usually complains about pushing snow, whined and complained and spun tires with this mess.
