Lots of ice falling from power lines while out driving. Pretty substantial chunks falling on vehicles.

Fun afternoon of tracking incoming. So wintry outside between the crystal forest out my back window and the squally clouds. Thanks for creating the thread @CCB!.

Sky got ominous here at the rcc campus and now having a quite burst of moderate snow. Hoping for more throughout the rest of the day.

Squall now winding down. Nothing really too bad, gusts up to 25 at most, but this has enough to hold through for a while imo.
