This is the ice on the top of the table on our deck. In the last three days, it was first covered with about 1/2" of ice and then a small amount of snow fell on top of that. As it's started to melt, it now looks like a cross between ice cubes and crushed ice. It's very strange the way the snow/ice is melting on all surfaces.
Our temp hit only 39F today without much of any sun to help the melting process along.
When I drove out our driveway at 1 p.m. I found the tree branches and bushes on either side were so heavily coated with ice that they nearly formed a tunnel-like canopy over the driveway. There were several spots where I had to (slowly) push through the icy overhangs.
But then when I came home about two hours later, most of the ice had fallen or melted off and I didn't brush any branches at all with my vehicle.
At least the ice hasn't been slippery. More like walking through a frozen daiquiri. Only drier. And not nearly as tasty.
