Mostly Freezing Rain

We didn’t get but about an inch or so of snow. We did get some freezing rain. The back screen door handle was frozen on the outside. I know this because I went outside to start my car. I put a piece of paper between the door and the door jamb so I could get back into the house. It didn’t work this time. I ended up banging on the door for my husband to let me in the house. Anyway, I’m not going to get the other Sunday paper until later in the day, if at all.

We've just had a little rain over night. This morning its still raining, and the wind has started to blow in a different direction and our temperatures are heading towards the freezing mark. Probably within the next hour we should be at freezing and then I think that the wet rain will change if it is still falling.

@Juliaacv It's about 31 now but the roads are slick. I went out and almost got stuck because I had to stop for a truck. They are slowly starting to melt.

@Susan2015 I hope that the melt comes soon for you. We are still above the freezing mark, but I don't know for how long.

I would never have thought about the screen door freezing to the door jamb.

The outside door handle was frozen @JudyEv so I put the paper at the bottom of the outside door between the jamb and the door so I could get back in but the gap wasn't big enough to hold the door open enough. So I couldn't get in.

@Susan2015 better door handles than what we have - freezing water pipes and my hubby spent hours in our ice cold cellar wrapping the pipes. What we do get outside is the lock on our garden gate freezes and you cannot get in or out.

@Susan2015 I remember as a child very, very occasionally the garden hose would freeze. That was about the extent of our problems with things freezing. Although I remember coming back from mustering sheep and my fingers being so cold I was battling to unsaddle my horse.

We got a few inches, nothing on the roads or sidewalks it looks like...the cat is a bit freaked about the ground outside being white, he's never seen it happen before.

Did your husband give you a dirty look since you got locked out. Mine would have.
