We get it here a few times in early winter, and then again in the early spring. This past bunch of storms presented us with 3 episodes of "ice fog", almost 30 inches of snow, and a couple of nasty ice storms. Global warming my a--. Did, however manage to slip and fall down my concrete front porch steps (5 of them) and suceeded in screwing up my back and tearing the rotor cuff in my left shoulder. Great winter so far, huh???

This is the first year I heard news folks using the word, ice fog. Basically it is an intense fog with limited to no visibility. But it sticks- forms ice- on everything. It is terrible to drive in, but looks very pretty on the trees (if you are close enough to see them in the fog) and when the fog first starts to lift. Every branch/twig has a very thin ice coating.. of course, the roads
and every structure has it on there too...
But it is weird to explain. It doesn't rain or like everything was wet and
ice formed.... the fog basically froze to cause the ice.
 I am sure it is common somewhere... but not here before this year.

Stay Dry and safe..... looks terrible out there by the news reports.

Here, we are having ice storms.  Had one last night and another expected
today, then snow later in the weekend.  sigh.

Last week we had ice fog. Something new around here, guess it is due to the
global warming or something....

Yep it stopped last night for the most part but we are supposed to get
another round today. Discovered my rain gauge in the back is not working
quite right, it is one of those ones that "floats" when the water goes
in but the floaty thing is old enough that it's something of a sponge.
It had 2.5 inches in it from yesterday but we're not sure if that's
right. I have one in front but the sycamore grew enough to overhang it,
so it only showed 1.5 inches. For us 3 inches in just a few days is
quite a bit.
The poor horses are standing in water, they are in their 3-sided
shelters which is usually good enough but the water is not draining away
now. There's no other place for them to get out of the rain so we left
them in, but tonight we'll probably turn them out again - they might get
wet but at least the ground is not so swampy. Is this stuff all supposed to head east? Are you guys going to get it
too?

I looked at the west coast satellite and it looks like all three
states are getting pretty well drenched. We're getting the usual here,
alternating sprinkling and drizzling.

We've been inundated with dire forecasts about the storms for the last
week and they were right. It's not too bad where I am, tho it's
definitely wet, but the LA basin and the coast are really getting
hammered. I saw on the news they even had a little tornado. There's a
bit of local flooding but it hasn't really rained hard enough for us
to
get the dangerous flash floods.
Anyway it's been raining since Monday, there have been a couple breaks
but mostly just light rain. We even had a little snow yesterday for
about an hour. It didn't stick at my elevation but we could see it on
the local hills. It doesn't seem very cold at the moment so I expect
the
rain will have melted it all.  Supposedly it will clear up Saturday.
I ordered my seeds and if the weather cooperates Saturday I will set
about pruning the fruit trees and the roses.
