Progressing To A White Christmas

This morning was not looking promising for a white Christmas. Weather forecasters had been clinging to signs of freezing rain for hopes of snow. But I was skeptical.

This is the view outside our bedroom window. It was raining. I decided to go out and run some errands this morning and as I was doing it, I noticed some ice on the roads.

Here is the view at 1pm. Ice had started sticking to the trees. I was worried, ice storms are nasty for everyone including wildlife.
Here I zoomed in and you can see the ice sticking to the branches.

Round about 1pm, the rain turned to giant fluffy fakes and as of two pm we have actual snow falling on the Twin Cities. If you are reading this and still at work, brace yourself for long commute home.
