here comes wednesday:
they're predicting rain until mid-afternoon, then turning to snow (accumulation of about 5-10 cm.), which means it'll be a barrel of laughs driving to work tomorrow! Because so far, this is what we've got. It rained, then it got cold, and the rain froze. So now we've got icy roads. Followed by a massive snow-fall, which means the ice is covered by snow, making getting around (especially on foot) very slippery. And with today's rain, followed by another snow-fall, we're getting ANOTHER layer of ice and snow! (see? THAT's what I don't like about winter here!) but I must admit, on clear days, when it's not freezing cold or windy, winter is very pleasant!
And just a little side-note: the sidewalks are still unplowed in most places, meaning the poor pedestrians have to walk in the road to get around. If I were to stand in the middle of the snowbank in front of the vet clinic where I work, the snow would be up to my armpits!
