Yesterday's cool(upper 30s) gloomy, rainy, foggy day eventually dropped below freezing at night, leaving us with a coating of ice everywhere, making driving or even walking potentially dangerous this morning. All untreated surfaces, such as my dad's driveway(pictured below) became extremely dangerous. Fortunately, with ample sun, the temperature jumped pretty quickly through the morning into the 40's making for beautiful conditions.
The warmer temps sure made for a nice day, but the colder temperatures to follow this week will make trail conditions in the snow much better. By the time I got home the driveway had turned to complete mush. Each step turned ice into slush and then into mud.
