Rain, ice, snow, rain, ice or snow to come?

Well I got up at 6am, still dark out, saw the white stuff on the ground, first for the year! It is February 26th and we finally get some snow! Not much maybe a half inch but it is sticking to the ground. I go feed the cats and then when I let them out I hear rain! At my backdoor it says 34* and on my computer it says 32* with a flashing advisory.  A winter weather advisory. For all my relative up North, I know this is nothing but with these roads, you still stay home because you don’t know when they will freeze. When you are descending a on a hill and there is a sharp curve at the bottom, no guard rails on one side with only the trees going down the hill to stop you and on the other side is the side of the mountain, you don’t want to find that one patch of ice you didn’t think was ice.
I have a meeting this afternoon in town and we’ll see if it is all clear or I may have to reschedule the meeting. That’s life living in the Ozarks in the winter.
Well it is now 7 am and it is getting lighter out there, the cats want in and now it is snowing big flakes!
