The sleet pelted in the very early morning, but now appears to have settled into snow. While our neighbors to the north in Tulsa are predicted to get a foot of snow, we are predicted to get 1/2 inch to 3 inches of snow, but a sheet of sleet. Last Winter we got an 11 inch snow--a record setting snow. That snow was easy to handle, though, because it brought with it no freezing rain and no sleet. Today's weather is apt to be less pleasant.
I'll go shower in a few moments and drive in to work. My normal commute is quite long, but on days like today it will be snail-like. I have a route I use for such days that is not heavily trafficked and yet has enough traffic to be relatively clear. It has few bridges of any kind. I hope that I can get some pictures of the winter weather. I like winter weather photos.
Yesterday I completed my California Mandatory Continuing Legal Education requirements on time. Now I must just turn in the form. Today I will get a few things done, and then come home during daylight. Tomorrow our high is supposed to be under 20 degrees.
We don't get Winter here like folks in the northeast get Winter, but we get only these few days. Winter tends to paralyze our region, as no snow plows or other contrivances exist to fight Winter weather. I like Winter weather, if not driving on Winter roads.
