Sunset over the Blue Ridge

The clouds broke open Sunday afternoon after a Saturday night’s freezing rain.

On my way to a meeting in Roanoke I was surprised to find more ice at the bottom of Bent Mountain than on top but warming temperatures later in the day left the road clear for the trip back home.

The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-50s on Monday followed by — you guessed it — more rain.
