Well we got it again this morning. I was going to snap another picture of my dash displaying the -24 as I drove in to work today but didn't dare take my hands off the wheel because:
#1. Black ice on the road everywhere. For those of you that don't know what black ice is:
Black ice is frozen without many air bubbles trapped inside, making it transparent. This type of ice takes the color of the material it lies on top of, often wet asphalt or a darkened pond. Its difficult-to-detect nature makes it a significant hazard to drivers, pedestrians, and sailors. At low temperatures (below 0°F), black ice can form on roadways when the moisture in automobile exhaust condenses.
Huh? Sailors? I'll be sure to watch out for the sailors on the road.
#2. I could barely see the cars in front of me due to all the exhaust coming from the cars.
I decided to launch my weather.com on my desktop and grab this screen shot for you all to see. It's -24 and Sunny?? Lucky us!
Have a super warm day!
