Most of Iowa was coated like this when the Monday morning of January 16, 2017 greeted us. It was treacherously slick on hard surfaces like concrete, but when I walked around on the grass, it sounded as if I was crushing potato chips, and I felt much safer. By 8 AM we were getting some light drizzle that began to freeze on top of the ice, although by Wednesday of this week it is to be up to 50 degrees. Dried seed heads, flower stems, leaves, and backyard objects took on a beautiful delicate appearance.
Don’t even think about going out!! Thanks!
