We got snow this past Thursday! It was quite exciting, because we just don’t get snow in Mississippi this far south very often, especially before January. Normally we are still in shorts at this time of the year. And the strange thing is, areas farther south than us got even more snow. According to the news, Florence, a little town about 10 miles south of Jackson, got almost a foot of snow! Although I did talk to someone who lives in Florence, and she said she only got about 6 inches. Still! That’s a lot of snow for us! LOL
At my house, Thursday morning started out with rain…a lot of rain. Then the temperature started dropping, so the rain changed to sleet and we started getting ice on our cars. Ice is not good! We do get ice here, and it always causes major problems. Ice was not what I wanted!
See what I mean about all the rain we got? The water is gushing up from the manhole thing over our sewer lines. I just refuse to believe that is sewer water though, in spite of what my husband says. I just believe it is run off rain water.
The pond was flooding too!
The other bridge had a raging torrent under it, almost ready to go over it. I thought it was quite exciting. :o)
Unfortunately, not long after I took these pictures, the snow changed back to rain. And it rained and sleeted all afternoon, so it turned all of our beautiful snow into icey slush. I was very happy to remain inside knitting, cuddled up with my dogs and kitty baby.
The temperature continued to drop way down into the 20s Thursday night, so Friday morning we got up to ice. Even our pond ended up with a thin coating of ice, which I thought was very unusual. Just in the shallow parts though, the deeper parts didn’t have any ice.
