Side/secondary roads are bad. They only plowed my street once. I need to pick DD up at 6pm. I'm not looking forward to that.

Good day everyone. EVERYTHING is covered in a thick sheet of ice. It's still snowing. :(

I experienced something with this winter storm that I have never, ever experienced before in any house that I have ever lived in. It's called ice damming. I didn't even understand what had happened until I saw it on the news. Somehow the water from the ice melting on the roof gets into the soffits and water gets routed into the inside of the house. I was lucky that it was only slight in the sunroom where there is tile and windows, no sheetrock. The news said that it's more likely to happen when you have gutter guards, which I do.

The large sheets of ice/snow sliding off the roof is pretty unnerving too. I haven't done a walk around outside yet, but I'm sure hoping that it hasn't damaged shingles or gutters 🤞.

I'm just glad that we're almost through with all of this.

Good day everyone. It's 30F feels like 23F.

Today I will hopefully be boiling and coloring eggs, making meat pie, cheesecake and prepping what I can for tomorrow.
I would like to pick up some cannoli for dessert tonight if possible.
Have a great day all.

Since the weather has been nice, I've been outside quite a bit. I've seen two of these roadrunners come through my yard. They just run around like they're looking for something and then just take off. Maybe they're looking for Wiley Coyote since we have lots of coyotes :corny:. Coyotes kill outside cats and small dogs, so I hope the roadrunners catch them.
