Crazy weather

I knew we were in trouble when I heard the plow scraping our road at 4:30 a.m. That meant it had snowed enough to plow. I didn’t even bother to get out of bed to see what it was doing, I just went back to sleep. Here is what I saw when I got up:

Now mind you, it got up to the low 40’s yesterday so there was no snow left on the table and chairs, nor on the deck railing. I figure somewhere between 4-6 inches of heavy, wet snow. I didn’t go out to measure because it was pouring rain. Yep, you heard right. Rain. On top of snow=slush. Heavy slush. No, more like sludge. So heavy it would appear that our forsythia hedge has suffered some breakage, as have some bushes against the garage. I need to go out and see if I can shake the heavy slush/sludge off the branches and see if some of them spring back. Rick was able to use the snowblower on the driveway, but only just. At least it wasn’t an ice storm!
