High today was 28 with sleet

Woke up to a very cold morning.   It didn't get any better as the day wore on.  It started to rain, then freezing rain and sleet.  By the time I left work to come home my car looked like a popsicle.
Of course this is after I took 30 minutes to get the ice off the windshield and side glass.  The drive home was a little slippery but thankfully, uneventful.
Should have worn gloves today.  The door was froze closed.  LOL  After a couple of hard tugs I got it open.
The ice is pretty on the trees and bushes.  Its the roads and bridges that are not pretty.  Luckily it wasn't as near bad as it could have been.  We only got 1/2 inch of ice.  This shouldn't cause any problems with electricity.   The weatherman is calling for temps above freezing by tomorrow afternoon, so this should be gone by early afternoon.

It could have been a lot worse.  It has been.  This is just enough ice to be "just pretty".
