slicker than snot....

Just thought I would share a pic of my yard

If you look closely, you might notice that the snow
looks a tad...shiny...

Yep.. about 6" of snow covered with about 2" of solid ice,
thanks to 24 hours of freezing rain a couple of weeks ago.
The good thing is that the 6" of snow that fell last weekend blew away
quite easily when the wind kicked up.
(It's very windy here in the winter)
The bad news is that 'break up' won't happen for another couple of months,
so we are stuck with this stuff.

Lily can't stand up on this stuff but she is learning to
 walk where the tire tracks compacted the snow so it didn't blow away
and she can get some traction☺
