I know plenty of you out there have it a lot worse than we do.

But we've had a couple of days of freezing rain. Definitely not riding weather.
It sure is pretty though...

How cool. GREAT pics. Not sure I'd want to ride in it either though. I think I'd end up with those icicles on my upper lip from my nose... ah, never mind.

The camera doesn't capture how dazzling all that ice is when the sun is on it.

Nice pics! Thanks for sharing.... freezing rain is worse than snow for sure. But both of them have to do with "freezing" which sucks. :sad:

Still 4" of frozen snow at my house. Kind of want to take the DR out and tear up the field but don't want to pick it up after I fall. :2_thumbsup:

A little further south, the big storm dropped about 3 inches of rain in 24 hours causing some local flooding. The past couple of mornings have been in the low to mid 20s, but fortunately the subfreezing temps came after the storm, so we did not have tree branches snapping off from ice loads in the hundreds of pounds.
