    We've got some serious black icing going on tonight.
    I don't know if it the frost coming out of the ground or what but it has turned into an ice rink out there, it is 36 degrees and raining still.
    The town is out in force putting down material.

    Just in my time...

    LOL, A old man story,,Just in the past ten years I have noticed that the season starts later and goes later.
    Where we used to get snow around Halloween and always by Thanksgiving we now don't see it till mid January and get plow-able storms right into April.
    It just doesn't stick around like it used to and pile up.You get a storm and the majority melts off and maybe another.
    The snowmobile season has been horrible the past two years up here, this year with two 14"+ snowfalls will only be a four week season again.Hardly worth spending $8,000 a machine for.
    I was just out chipping the ice away so the run off would have a place to go.

    It's pretty bad out there right now. My street had runoff on it all day and now it is about 2" of thick ice and another 2" of sand and salt.
