Well Dave, I always suspected we weren't in our right mind . Actually, when you are getting that kind of ice-rain, the temps are usually not that bad....somewhere around the 0C range. Having just come through almost 3 weeks of -30C (or colder, including wind chill) we would welcome those balmy temps!
