The Charlotte, NC area has been the recipient of a “wintry mix” today, and it feels colder outside than it actually is. Last I checked, it was 32 degrees but when I went outside it felt like about 25.

Our roads are iced up in some spots like that flower. This area doesn’t handle weather like this well, so the drive home should be interesting but hopefully uneventful.
I guess I should be thankful that we’re only getting a wintry mix that will melt away tomorrow in 50 degree weather, rather than going through what Denver has these last few weeks.
