coated with sleet

The sleet began yesterday afternoon, a steady, gentle pelt. By the time last evening my partner and I left our offices, the little parking lot was quite icy. I took Jupiter, a well-travelled non-freeway road, and was fine until Jupiter intersected with Spring Creek. Then things went all bumper to bumper and I had to switch over to Greenville. This morning I arose in the pre-dawn to figure out if my nine a.m. court hearing has been cancelled. The court's website, though, merely says to call the judge's courtroom deputy. I'm not sure the courtroom deputy will be at her station at 6:45 a.m., passing on weather conditions, so I may have to begin the icy drive down,
only to arrive and perhaps learn that it's all closed, anyway. This is a very busy week for me, so the weather is a real nuisance. I cannot believe it was seventy degrees Saturday, and is 20 degrees now. Our Texas winters always work this way.
