Last night the weather report predicted “glaze.” Now bear in mind that I am from the South. Until I moved to New York 20 years ago, I never needed anything heavier than a denim jacket in my wardrobe. And in the 20 years that I’ve been here, I’ve experienced blizzards, sleet, hail and other non-Florida phenomena, but never “glaze.” I didn’t know what to expect. So for anyone else not aquainted with it, here are a few photos of it. It does resemble frosting dripping off the sides of a cake.
Ice skating on the driveway, anyone? Yep, the road is iced over too. Doesn't this look like it would be fun to drive on?
To make things even more befuddling, our school district calls at 5:30 a.m. to say that school is on a TWO HOUR DELAY. So I get up at 6, scrape off the car, sprinkle melting pellets all over the driveway and pull the car out to make sure that I can get the kids to school later.
Then the school calls back again at 7:00 to report that school is now CANCELLED. Sigh. I go back to bed. When I get up two hours later the rain has melted everything.
That’s not the only dripping that’s going on – I’m referring to the dripping from my nose. Here’s a little sample of what I’ve been putting into and onto my body in recent days. No wonder my head is so foggy.
If you have any indoor or outdoor dripping going on, I hope it dries up soon!
