Here’s our street on the afternoon of December 18. At least this snowstorm (on the 17th) wasn’t immediately followed by sleet, unlike the preceding storm (December 14/15). There’s still a sheet of ice underneath everything, but not on top.
You can see the ice in this photo from the afternoon of the 15th. This was the only time we took the dog out without booties; poor thing was walking with her toes splayed out so much it looked like duck feet.
Here she is with the booties on her front feet; she’s much happier that way, though you can’t really tell in the picture. Overall she seemed to manage the snow and ice in a less freaked-out manner than last winter (see photo from last February’s “winter storm Nemo“), but I’m sure we’ve got bigger storms coming.
