Good morning friendlies

Got up with difficulty this morning. I'm in serious need of a long holiday. Even if I don't go anywhere, I just want the rest. Every day is a struggle to get up and get ready for work...Lol

Wishing everybody a good day filled with sunshine and happiness *hugs*

I know that's right! lol

I'll take this round of ice, but I don't want to do this all winter that's for sure!

For three days now, the weatherfolks have been predicting a "big snow and ice storm", which hit at around 4pm. Got called in to work early, because the store was swamped by people stocking up for being snowed in. Then, I got to leave an hour early too, so that my coworkers could get home safely. Saw 3 wrecks in the 4 blocks from the store to the house, on the way home.

We weren't one of 'em! Huzzah!!

The upshot?
...we got a lovely layer of sleet, then some light dusting of snow, and then some rain. Then the temperature dropped 10 degrees. It's a sheet of ice about 1/16th of an inch thick, for 10 miles in every direction, but no snow.

Maybe next time....

The networks here are filled with tributes to his life/legacy.

His passing has left the world with a great void.

Changing from rain to sllet/freezing rain here. Colder.\'n sh1t... Snow on the way. How much remains to be seen. Weather dude is saying anywhere from 3" with up to 7" possible.(shit....)

I'm all for boxing it up and shipping it to Rotor.....

Just in: Thin sheet of ice now with change over to snow in the next couple of hours. Accumulation in our area expected to be 3"-6".(shit......)

Sad passing of Nelson Mandela

If travelling in and around South Africa or intend to do so in the next week, travellers may experience some disruption to travel plans and possibly accommodation shortages, particularly in the Johannesburg, Pretoria and Eastern Cape areas.

Condolence books will be opened at all South Africa's foreign embassies as well as at his former home in Soweto, which is now a popular museum. A special sitting of parliament may also be held in Cape Town, South Africa's legislative capital.

A ceremony of remembrance will be held, most likely in the FNB football stadium that previously hosted the soccer World Cup.

Nelson Mandela's body will spend some time lying in state, either in Pretoria's City Hall or the Union Buildings.
One day will be set aside for the VIPs expected to fly in and afterwards the doors will be opened to the public.

Mandela's body will be flown to Qunu, the tiny village 900 kilometres south in the rural Eastern Cape, where Mandela grew up, with his coffin likely to be met by President Zuma and a full military contingent to accompany it on a 30-kilometre procession to its final resting place at his home.

Well,the freezing rain/sleet overnight held off(thank goodness). Temps are still dropping and soon we'll see the sleet. After a while changing to snow. Weather dude says a possible 3+ inches depending on the storm track. Any way you look at it its gonna be nasty.

We got a couple inches in the night, and it's still falling.

Dry and powdery, looks like - gotta trek to the store, so we'll see...
