Yes, we are getting ice. Little white pellets that sound like popcorn hitting the window. It turned over to snow about an hour ago but now it is back to sleet. The driveway is covered in ice. It is all sparkly and pretty just don't dare step on it. It is very slick, I tried when getting these pictures, so I came in raised the window and cheated....
The news said there are several accidents as the roads are so slick. Schools and businesses are already delaying for 2 hours, but if it gets worse I'm sure they will cancel school. Thank goodness none of us have to be out on the roads tomorrow. Hannah doesn't have school and well you know we don't have to go to work.
I forgot to tell you in my story last night about our ice storm nightmare that I also had an accident after the power came back on. My parents had come up to the house to see us and my Mom took some dishes home to wash for me, they were kind of stacked up. We decided to go out and pick up some limbs. I was already worn out, living like we were, hauling water to the animals, and trying to entertain a 4 yr old with no power. Some one asked why we didn't leave, well we couldn't because we had too many animals to care for and leaving your home in these conditions is so vulnerable. We did stay at my parents for a few days for a break. Anyway, after we had picked up some limbs we were walking back into the house on the sidewalk. My foot caught on an edge that was high and I feel "flat" on my face. I was carrying some items my Mom had brought and I couldn't catch myself. I had this big abrasion on my knee about the size of a half dollar. It didn't tear my jeans but sure messed up my knee. We called my OB doctor and he asked if I could feel the baby move, I said yes, and so he said I didn't have to come in. Good! I don't think I could have made it to the hospital. I think falling on the items (which by the way I broke into pieces) took the fall off my pregnant belly. I remember my Dad and Art had to lift me up off the side walk, I had no energy to get up. I went in the house and sat down and cried. My knee hurt so bad, and it hurt for weeks. I still have a scar on my knee to this day and that was 22 yrs ago.
Hannah was born safe and sound, we had power and all went back to normal. Well as normal as it could be with a newborn and a toddler.
So from an "icy" Indiana best wishes!
