Ice, ice baby

Remember Vanilla Ice? If you wonder what he is up to, you can check here. :)

We went to bed hoping for a nice snow storm and woke up to an inch plus of ice, covering everything including our patio and driveway. Egaads! It is wretched to chip away, and we can't really tell what the weather is going to do next. The reports include rain, maybe sleet and then some snow. Paul is out chipping away as I type.

Paul took Samson out this morning and our dog was none too happy about the ice. He could get no traction and was sliding all over the place. We will try to take him out later and let him get some exercise. It is just YUCK all over the place; now the rain mix is starting to fall and I don't know which coat to wear - should wear the winter coat and will probably need my rain poncho over it! :)

Sunny and nice here in San Diego :^)

(but then, my home has negative equity and gas is $3.40 a gallon)

Ok, that's 15 minutes of my life I'll never get back; catching up on the trials and tribulations of one-hit-wonder Vanilla Ice.

Hope the weather decides what to do so you know what coat to wear. :-)

Lisa,

You made me laugh heartily for several minutes. Sorry about that 15 minutes ... I will try and be more considerate when posting. When I saw the ice, all I could think of was ice, ice, baby...and I can't get that d*mn melody out of my head!

It is STILL yuck, big time yuck and we have another winter storm watch. Oh joy.
