Winter weather 2014
Thick Ice Covering My Van!
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
After snowing about 6 inches, the rain started falling Wed morning about 9am. It has been falling all day and into the evening, leaving a thick layer of ice on everything. Temps have been remaining over freezing, so until they do drop we should be fine. We'll be in better shape than states to our south.
Comparing Memphis, TN snow and ice events to those up here.. I'd rather take any storm up here before in the south again. I lived near Memphis for 6 years, I remember one ice storm that left us stranded for days...
Still raining lightly outside and a check of the temp says (34F)... We would have taken the snow over this rain any day. This area needs a good snow cover to insulate the pipes underground. Snow prevents many things from freezing hard.
