What a weather week!  It is always amazing to me how drastically the weather can change from one day to the next here in the great state of North Carolina, especially in the winter.   I made certain to take these pictures around the same time each day to track exactly what was happening. 

Thursday was beautiful, with temperatures in the 60's.  If you didn't know better you would believe spring was here. Friday however, we had the threat of snow and freezing temperatures.  Around 7:00 Friday evening it started to snow.  It snowed a good portion of the night and the snow changed over to sleet in the wee hours of the morning.  It has been sleeting ever since.   I think so far our accumulation is about 5 inches.  The weather folks think it is going to sleet for a while longer and then change back to snow.  All of this is suppose to go on until sometime in the middle of the night with temperatures in the teens.  The proposed high for tomorrow is in the low 30's. 

The sleet has been so heavy throughout the day that it wasn't really fun to be out in.  I don't have a lot of snow/sleet pictures right now but hopefully will have an opportunity to take some over the next couple of days. 

Stay warm!
