You Can't Say We Missed Anything
To round out the week of winter excitement this morning we had Freezing Fog. We started out with a bit over 1/2 inch of ice, followed by about 2" of sleet mixed with freezing rain, followed up with 8" of snow (mixed with freezing rain), and this morning garnished with a bit of freezing fog. Freezing fog paints the edges of leaves with little point of frost, like frost on a window pane. It can really only build up like this when there is not wind. Considering that the default here in Oklahoma seems to be a 10 mile per hour "breeze" we don't get the full effect often. The fog has mostly lifted now, and light snow is falling. It rather gives the lie to the TV weather claims that our weather today is clearing and warming. No matter, by later this week we'll be back in the 50's with rain.
