We've been getting snow most of the day now. I cleared a good 6 or 6 inches already, and it'* still coming down. Freezing rain now. And I have to drive to work in the morn.

****!

A branch of ice and wood fell on my car.

Theres a layer of thick ice all around her and a branch is sitting aside her.

At least the whole windshield (buried under 4 inches of an ice snow mix) broke the fall.

AND there was a HUGE one that fell and bonne missed it by a car length
