Ice, Ice, Baybee!

VDOT didn't bother to salt the streets for yesterday's "winter weather event" here in the Northern Virginia 'burbs, which meant that this morning there were a number of surprising little ice patches on the roads. Wheeeeeeeee!!

On the other hand, this is the first morning we've been above freezing in quite some time. And without any wind, it felt downright balmy walking up from the Metro to the office.

UPDATE: Jen was slip-slidin' away today, too.

Was it black ice? That's when things get REALLY fun.

Yes, indeed. The best kind.

Well, you know it was only raining for much of last night so they must have forgotten that it would still freeze by morning. Idiots.

I skated around my car to scrape the ice off of my windows and then my car skated out of my neighborhood. It took an hour to get to the office because of the untreated black ice.
