Under a layer of ice

The entire barnyard was literally creaking this morning.  The cows were bellering.  The geese honking, and the sheep were skeetering around, trying to understand why the ground beneath them was shattering with every step.

Last night we had lightening and thunder.  Rain ushered in by driving winds eventually turned to sleet.  Northern Wisconsin, along with several other states, were also hit with measurable snowfall on top of this ice.  Thank God we were at least spared that!  The weatherman predicts that it will melt off today, but warns that we should brace ourselves for a second round again tonight.  *sigh*   Oh, Spring, where are you?
