Walking in the (freezing) rain

Working from home today to avoid the weather wizard's bit of craziness allowed me to walk during daylight hours. The snow turned to heavy flakes by mid-afternoon. As I started my walk, the snow changed to freezing rain.

Listen! I can hear the snow crunching under my feet.
And then... smoothly plowed surfaces quickly turned into a thin sheet of ice, slippery.

There is a lot of snow on the ground. The first photo isn't a portrait of random pieces of wood - it's the top rail of a fence, a fence that is easily waist-high. And the second? The curved metal bench is almost buried in snow. Brrr! that looks like a very cold seat.
