Our overnight freezing rain didn't happen. Well, at least not the freezing part that is but the rain did continue and it played a big part along with yesterday's +40F temps in melting a lot of snow. That melted snow turned to water of course and that water formed wet ice underfoot. I'm sure a number of folks were probably injured today around the area from slipping and falling on the icy surfaces.
|IF THAT WAS FLAT ICE IT WOULDN'T BE SO BAD BUT IT'S BUMPY ICE AND THAT'S THE WORST IT CAN POSSIBLY BE|
|THE ONLY WAY TO GET AROUND ON THIS ICE IS TO VERY SLOWLY AND VERY CAREFULLY SHUFFLE YOUR FEET|
|OH SO NICE TO FINALLY SEE SOME GREEN GRASS AGAIN|
|ICE HAS BROKEN UP IN THE BAYFIELD RIVER AND OPEN WATER IS VISIBLY FLOWING|
|IT WAS ONLY A FEW DAYS AGO I TOOK A PICTURE OF AN ICE FISHERMAN OUT THERE|
|ICE IS BUNCHING UP UNDERNEATH THE BAYFIELD BRIDGE|
|NICE TO SEE OPEN LAKE HURON WATER WAY OUT THERE AGAIN|
|CEMETERY ROADS WERE VERY ICY|
|HOW NICE TO FIND SOME GRASS TO WALK ON|
|YEP, THAT'S THE JEEP WAY DOWN THERE|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A guy sees an advertisement in a pet-shop window: "Talking Centipede $100." The guy goes in and buys it. He gets home, opens the box and asks the centipede if he wants to go for a beer. The centipede doesn't answer, so the guy closes the lid, convinced he's been swindled. Thirty minutes later he decides to try again. He raises his voice and shouts, "Do you want to go for a beer?" The centipede pokes his head out of the box and says, "Pipe down! I heard you the first time. I'm putting on my shoes!"
