Rain, Snow, Sleet, Thunder, Lightening...

That pretty much sums up the last five days here in good 'ole Central Illinois. Thursday night/Friday morning we got somewhere around 11" of snow. By Sunday we were getting rain, sleet, thunder, and lightening. Yes we were getting the four all at once. We call it thunder ice. It's bizarre to look out across your yard at over a foot of piled snow thanks to the wind and then see a flicker of lightening, followed by thunder. Then the ice starts. Gotta love it!!! That's the beauty of Central Illinois... if you don't like the weather, just stick around for a few minutes and it will change. LOL

Anyway, yesterday and today the fog has been horrendous. It was really horrible yesterday. You couldn't see but a few feet in front of you. Today has been much better but still not pretty. Luckily, the thunderstorms and rain last night melted all the snow so driving isn't as hazardous today. Now we are supposed to get more thunderstorms tonight and snow. Should make for another interesting week and unfortunately my internet may be touch and go so if I'm not around... I promise I'll update on Friday even if I have to stay at work late to do it.

Well, take care all. I'm off to get ready to have a tooth pulled.
