Nearly the same thing happened at APN:

Yeah, northern Michigan in places like APN got a coating of freezing rain overnight Sunday into Monday. The ground surface temps were below freezing but the atmosphere was warm enough to cause rain, freezing on contact.
On a side note, no wonder DL wants to get out APN. 8 passengers on a 50 seat RJ on a Monday morning.
