So the reports at least since Friday, had called for Ice/Rain possibly Snow for Sunday and Monday.
I decidedly wandered up from my basement dungeon around 11:15 pm CST to see if anything was stirring in Nature besides me. And even though it was an expected possibility I was still shocked to see snow layering the ground and flitting through the sky like it was mid January.
Well I am sure that the news reports by early morning rush hour will have accidents all ice and snow related, with maybe a power outage or two because the trees are just cracking under the shock of this cold snap and the heavy slushy snow.
I happened to be outside and hear a Cracking, a crackle, a few snaps, and then the sound you would hear in a forest as a tree is about to timber and whack! a large branch of a neighbors tree comes down into their yard and across the sidewalk. Thankfully it did not hit anything of value or hurt anyone. And whilst I was merrily snapping of pictures I heard a cracking above me and since my yard is full of all sorts of trees and overhead branches I figured I had fared the elements long enough and came back into my roaring fire.
