Winter Storm Leon at Our House

Thomas enjoyed a day off from school due to Winter Storm Leon on Wednesday. The superintendent said the decision was made "out of an abundance of caution." It was probably the right thing to do, especially considering how things went Tuesday in Atlanta. The forecast ranged from 1/4 inch of snow/ice/sleet to 3 inches. It turned out to be mostly rain, though some of it was freezing.

Can you see the frozen rain accumulating on the deck?
(Click on the photo to see it larger!) 8:45am Wed
The only place you could really see the frozen stuff was on the deck.
On other surfaces, it melted on contact. 10:20am Wed
After the rain/sleet/ice stopped, the temp dropped.
Icicles on the trash bin. 2:12pm Wed
Thomas still has our FSU Championship flag on display in the
front yard. The wind had knocked it over. I stood it back up
and almost froze my hands! All the water droplets were ice.
