Here's a little something for my family and friends in California who are horrified by the thought of dealing with snow and ice:
Here is my driveway. I cleared the snow but there is still a half-inch layer of ice that won't come up. About all I can do is lay down salt and hope for the best.
I then took my yardstick out to the front lawn for a measurement. It went down about 4 inches when it hit something hard.
Turns out the hard thing that the stick hit was a solid layer of ice on top of the grass.
I broke through the ice and measured about 3 more inches until I hit the grass.
What a cool thing to wake up to this morning! I'm just hoping that school is not cancelled again tomorrow. The kids are getting restless.
