Sleet and ice

There's sleet falling outside the window, and when it was still light, evidence of significant accumulation.  Strange weather, to be sure. 

It's mid-February.  In the Southeast.  Daffodils have popped up, with flowers, blueberry buds are swelling, and the quince has a few tentative flowers, too.

But we're presented with another blast of frigid arctic air this week -- on Wednesday night, temperatures are predicted to be ~ 11°F  here in the Piedmont -- definitely cold for this time of the year.

The cold air flowing down from the northern Polar realms seems to be pushing out the warmer, humid air -- as the predictions keep getting colder -- for overnights.
