Above is a look at the sleet that has been falling in the area ever since this system entered the viewing area. This picture I took in Lafayette where the Sleet is coming down pretty heavy at time! And it is making things SLICK! It's like walking on tiny beads. Or sand! You can see how it just pours out of my hand in the above photo. This stuff is making a slight ice pack on sidewalks. I have been out shoveling it off as fast as it fall. And let me tell you (IT'S WORK!).
This will continue into this evening before changing over to all snow later tonight into early Wednesday. I have recorded 0.50" inches of sleet in Lafayette, up to this point and time. Remember we said we could pick up another 1.0" to 1.5" inches near two inches of sleet! And that is still very likely!
Stay safe bloggers and stay off the roads as much as possible. I'll continue to check back as needed. Be sure to send your weather pictures and weather reports to me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
