Hubby and I have been busy all day,removing sleet. this beautiful winter scene is not snow but 6-8 inches of sleet. little balls of ice,6 to 8 inches of it. our weather man said in his 14 years as a weather man he never saw so much sleet. this is our collasped shed,with all the weight of the sleet it collasped,the ice pile I stacked after hubby got it off the roof of the shed. Hubby looking at roof of shed. I cleared part of the walk way. I will finish tomorrow, the ice is very heavy and I didn't want to over do it. side view of shed and another ice pile, we had 4 piles of ice. we will be out there tomorrow doing more work with the sleet. arkansas called out the national guard to clear roads,they still are not all cleared yet.

    Oh, Carolyn, I am so sorry for this accumulation of sleet! I have never heard of so much!
    Your poor shed.
    Hopefully there will be a silver lining that will show itself, after it is all said and done.
    Please take your time so you all do not hurt yourselves.
    We are getting warmth, this weekend and praying you get it too. emoticon emoticon

    What a racket that must have made! Never heard of such an accumulation of sleet before. And all the work that was put into the shed.!! May God send warm sunshine to melt the sleet and strength to make the repairs.

    Oh my, Carolyn! What a lot of heavy sleet you have there and so much work clearing it off walk way & roofs!! Do take it easy, don't try to get it all done in one or two days. It won't go anywhere, take your time.

    Thinking of you!
