This weekend we have been warned about an ice storm. We started seeing this on TV recently.
Iowa was pretty much covered with that red "icy mix" part.
On the interstate we saw signs like this.
So it was no surprise when we woke up this morning to warnings to stay off the roads and that there were countless accidents involving those people who did try to brave the bad conditions.
I have stayed inside this morning but I am sure there are many scenes out there that look like this.
I am hearing that by later this afternoon the temperature will be high enough to melt the ice and things will be okay again.
For me, mornings like this are a good excuse to stay home, enjoy a good book and just have some quiet time. I have always felt that there are times when the best sound is the sound of silence.
Wait a moment .... that could be the name of a great song! Hmmm ....
