Here we are in the first week of December and yesterday we woke up to this...
There was about 2" of snow and then freezing rain all day. We heard tree branched cracking all day. Some of our shrubs and bushes are leaning over. I hope my camellias aren't damaged. The fan on our heat pump was encased in ice started making a thumping sound. Jeff shut it off, de-iced the fan and covered the unit. We are fortunate to also have electric baseboard heat as a back up. We knew the heat pump would ice up again quickly. It's a new unit and we didn't want to take any chances in damaging the motor.
There was a lull in the storm overnight but more freezing rain was predicted for the early morning. We woke up to snow instead.
I will take snow over freezing rain any day... but I truly prefer the sunshine.
