Ice, Ice, Baby...

Take a lovely falling of snow and add a nasty dollop of frozen precip, and whattya got? Nobody goes out of the house today...

Wanted to walk over to the river for some recon. It’s still rising apparently. But couldn’t make it more than a few yards from the house. Every step like falling through the ice, but nothing to drown you underneath...just hard going.

Crash on the levee, mama
Water’s gonna overflow
Swamp’s gonna rise

No boat’s gonna row
