Slush 2

What’s the saying for a March that has the lion in the middle?

Four inches so far. Four inches of pure slush–sleet on top of rain.

I left the job site early. The normal 1 hour 15 minute drive home took 2 hours and 30 minutes.

I was half-way home when I started to see the ice and about 20 minutes behind schedule, because I took the old road, not the new road (glad I did–the new road had two lanes closed from a crash somewhere around Odessa). From that point on, I saw eight accidents, including one car on its roof and two so deep in the ditch I don’t think they’ll ever come out again.

Oh, yeah, there was a 10-minute stop in Dover to get some new catridges.

And the usual crop of SUV’s who want to go 60 just to prove they can . . . .

    According to my rain gauge, we had four inches of snow.

    Melted down, it was three inches of water.

    That will give you an idea how heavy and icy the precipitation was.

    I’m so glad we’ve seen the worst of ours, I hope! March is supposed to be the “snowiest” month, but so far all we’ve seen is rain.
