Well, close enough.

I left my house at 11:30 for to do the shopping I didn't do yesterday (yesterday was a strange, nothing, floaty day. Sort of a minivacation. It was nice and necessary.)

My front steps were icy and I had to be very careful getting down. Not all my neighbors had shoveled adequately and there were a lot of slippery stretches on the sidewalks. I was ready to go home and change to my winter boots, but decided not to.

After lunch and shopping, I walked home. It was about 12:30.

And most of the ice had turned to water, or had at least gotten texture to make it less dangerous. My front steps were damp but no longer slippery.

My side of the block faces west. It's a lovely, cold clear day, and there was nothing shading the front yard.

It's amazing what a half hour of sunlight can do when the average temp is only a degree below freezing (it's 31F according to Weather Watcher.)
