Thanks for sharing that @tawood . VFR or IFR, freezing precip has always been my #1 fear when flying in the winter, and I did quite a lot of it in Michigan. Never encountered it there, but there but for the grace of God... sounds like you did good once you had no choice but to continue to land. In the future I'll bet you'll be a lot more hesitant to launch when there is any chance of running into the bad stuff. Fly safe.
