Updated!! Winter Storm... MLK Weekend Winter Storm? Izzy? Whatever You Call It ... It Delivered! Snow at Sunrise, Sleet Later... Now Freezing Rain & Ice on Pines. In FL Tornado Warnings Galore... Crazy.

Updated 8:30 pm

It’s been a crazy day of ever changing forms of precipitation from snow to sleet to freezing rain and eventually heavy rain as the warm nose moved in as the models verified perfectly. I have power but many do not across a wide area, across many states. 

We had icicles hanging from the roof, trees covered in a thin layer of ice. I watched as a small branch on a large oak tree crashed down in the wind.  Tonight  while out on the balcony for a moment I realized a light in the townhouses behind me was shinning down onto the ice on the pine trees turning them into golden glitter as the yellow streetlight illuminated what was left of the ice at twilight.  Simply beautiful!!  

Snow is magical. Sleet is neat and has a beat!

Freezing rain is mesmerizing but a bit scary as Ice is nice to look at but it can be dangerous and take the power out .  

I’m tired.  I barely slept. 

Maybe later in the week we will have another chance at snow!

Thanks for following along … and for joining in the conversation online.

This is impressive.
In the old days we'd call it a SuperStorm.
Not sure what the rules for that is but...
...from Tornadoes in Florida to Snow and Ice...
