We had a heat wave on Wednesday! It hit 17 degrees, but we are being hammered by a storm, and have been since early Wednesday morning! The snow is piling up outside. I would guess right now, we probably have a good 18-24 inches of fresh snow, at 12:30 am. It's hard to tell at our house, because the wind likes to move it around quite a bit. I will say it's pretty, but it sure was a slow, and icy drive to and from Coeur d'Alene. I don't know how many times the Interstate was shut down, but I know there were a few times. Not only was there a lot of snow on the roads on the morning commute, but there was a lot of black ice which made drivers think the roads were bare in spots, however they were covered in ice! There were a lot of wrecks and slide offs along the way.
I snapped a few photos while I was downtown, before and after dark.
I couldn't resist taking a few into the street light while I was on my way home. At this point, I was out on the prairie, where the two lane roads had drifted into one lane, and the snow was coming down sideways.
