We didn't get a lot of snow this year, but we did have a couple small storms that dropped a couple inches at a time last week. Unfortunately, we also had an ice storm, and that one was first. So our streets are a mess of thick ice, rutted and covered with snow. Over the weekend, the sun stayed hidden but the temps rose enough that the mess finally started melting. That's the good news. The bad news is, with all the ruts in the ice, the melt wasn't moving. So we got out shovels and choppers and started chipping out ditches to the storm sewers, trying to drain flooded streets. We're expecting one more warm day, and I'm hoping most of this water will be gone, or it will refreeze into another patch of ice come Tuesday.
