Yesterday was icy, today was snowy. It seems Mother Nature has been reading my blog. Although we didn't get a snowstorm, snow fell throughout the day today adding up to an inch or two in spots. This was just a nuisance snow, but it was really nice to watch. Roadways remained clear with only a few icy patches on untreated roads through the day. However, by late this afternoon the winds began to pick up and began to blow the snow across the north/south roads creating snow packed stretches. Road crews were trying to keep the snow off of the road, but the wind just blew the snow back onto the roads. There are still some snow showers around and untreated roads that were wet through the day are freezing back over. As a result roads are icy and hazardous in spots.
