Good old Rexburg winters!

A few days ago Adam and I were getting ready to go to the store. It was about 8:30 p.m. and it had been snowing for most of the day. But, when we went outside it was raining! It was so cold outside that the rain would freeze right as it hit the ground or.....the cars! So we began to try and use our ice scrapers to get rid of the ice on our windshield, but no luck. Our whole car had been frozen in a big sheet of ice. We acutally had to crack the ice to get it off. It was the weirdest thing! The ice then would come off in big sheets. In the 3 or 4 years I have been in Rexburg now, I have never seen this! After about a half an hour of trying to get all the ice off our car we decided not to go to the store since the roads were so icy, and it was still raining. After this experience Adam told me how they had ice storms all the time in Tennesse when he was on his mission. It would rain and everything would be frozen. Pretty crazy!

Crazy! That reminds me of one winter on my mission in Corvallis. Everything was covered ins snow and then a thick layer of ice. The funniest was that the whole city shut down because now one had equipment for such weather. ( :
