Icy Sunday

Every so often, even with global temperatures on the rise, we have some very cold, inclement weather. This Sunday was a case in point: Severe rain storms occurred while temperatures dropped into the low teens. As a result, roads, trees, shrubs, and houses were completely sheathed in thick coats of frigid, crackling, shimmering ice. The appearance was like a winter wonderland, but the consequences were very bad: numerous accidents, the inability of ambulances to reach accident victims, sprained and broken ankles and wrists, crowded emergency rooms, and an icy Sunday that made travel nearly impossible.
I got lots done around the house, cleaning closets, organizing clothes, and doing paperwork. What did you do???
