Mackerel sky, never long wet and never long dry

When I headed out to the bus stop this morning, I was startled to see a mackerel sky. I haven't seen that many mackerel skies in Hades, and they've always been in the evening. I don't know if this had anything to do with the freezing rain that was forecast and arrived later in the day.

It's pretty, but worrisome. Freezing rain and little snow make for a miserable winter, and apparently we're heading for similar conditions that led to the Great Ice Storm of 1998. Oh please, no….
