Snowy 2014 in Central Alabama

Yesterday we woke up to below freezing temps and rain.  It wasn’t too much longer before the rain was mixed with sleet.  We headed to work even though we knew soon we’d be released due to weather.  Here in central Alabama we are not prepared for snow and ice.  At 9:30am hubby and I decided to head for the house since everything was starting to ice over.  After only two hours our truck was covered in ice.  The bridges were already slushy and we did see a few wrecks during our 12 mile drive.  This morning we woke up to more snow, but since temps were in the teens last night everything turned to ice.

We didn’t go to work today since all the roads are officially closed until tomorrow at noon. I hate burning leave for a snow day, but better safe than sorry.
