Ice in Benton County

Attached are 2 photos, one of a measurement of ice buildup on trees and another of ice coating a fence and Christmas lights. Ice buildup is currently between one quarter and 3/8ths of an inch. Photos were taken 4 miles southwest of Van Horne along Highway 30.

I almost got wiped out last week twice. Once by a man in a pickup who didn't yield at a sign. And another man the next morning who rolled through a stop sign while on his cell phone. I'm in a big black suv in plain sight, come on fellas.
