Dave, we get a similar effect in Tennessee, when falling rain freezes on surfaces (happens far more often than snow, here). Typically builds up on trees, overpasses, and power lines.

Followed shortly thereafter by darkness and cold...:(

One year follow-up yesterday and no signs of cancer! 

Had my CT scans yesterday and officially 2 years cancer-free (also a 45 year cancer survivor) 

So, my wife goes to empty the clothes dryer, and the plastic door pull snaps off in her hand. This looks like a job for "WOODWORKERMAN"! One scrap of cherry later, and BOOM: I considered usin

I had a snow emergency day today, due to that, followed by freezing rain, followed by wet heavy snow. Lots of localized power outages due to falling limbs, including some school buildings.

I fetched the morning paper this morning barefooted with a temp of 39* but it didn’t take me long to get back inside! I remember about 10 years ago in SD, pheasant hunting, there was snow on the parking lot at the mom and pop motel and I walked from my room to the office to get a cup of coffee bare footed. My fellow comrades thought I had too much to drink from the night before and were reluctant to hunt beside me. It’s from my waist up that cold goes straight thru me.
