The sleet mixed with freezing rain and some snow started on
Monday, January 15, 2007. Much of the county as well as San Antonio was iced over
until late Wednesday. I-10 was closed both ways from downtown San Antonio to
Junction (114 miles). It was a mess!!!
We did not leave the house
until Wednesday - the driveway and streets had about 1/2" ice.
Doris' view looking North through the ice on the windows.
The 8th fairway was covered with ice - we saw no golfers for 3 days.
The street and driveway were iced over.
A few deer looked for some food.
The limbs of the large oak "climbing tree" near the new
house were on the ground due to the weight of the ice.
This is a close-up of a green weed in the brown grass. The
ice blanket on the grass was strong enough in many places to hold a person.
Icicles on our fence in the back.
There were also plenty of icicles on the house.
I saw this picture I realized that some might break off and damage the AC unit, so I
protected the unit and removed the ice above it.
Some really long icicles on the North side.
Ice at top of driveway.
Thursday morning was 34°, but our well insulated house was still
covered with ice.
