This time last year we had the most sleet I have ever seen. We ended up with about six inches of very compacted sleet and snow. We had some rain mixed in there too. it was heavy to shovel it. It was funny to see the people on the news trying to dig there cars out of the icy mass after everything refroze. We did ours while it was still fairly mild.
We ended up getting about six inches of very compact sleet and snow in this storm. It started out with 3 to 4 inches of snow then heavy sleet all night then it warmed up to 33 degrees with sleet and rain. A few ours later the temperature dropped and eventually reached the single digits at night. Everything froze as solid as a rock and is still that way. This is the first time I remember being able to walk on top of the snow.
