Tennessee didn't get a blizzard, but we did get SNOW! My son and I were visiting Rascal and the Rascalettes and got to enjoy the beauty with them. They had a bonfire and cookout planned per our request, so we didn't let lots of snow and a bit of sleet and rain stop us from the fun. Even topped it off with loads of fireworks. What a great time!
We left out early today, as road conditions were "snowy with patches of ice" from her home to ours. Had been told I could expect some 30 mph conditions, so set out expecting about a 6 hour drive. Turned out the roads were clear, and we made it home in 4 hours. Driving through middle Tennessee with all the beautiful snow covered slopes was delightful. Got so excited about viewing the scenery, was just following the car ahead of me, and not paying attention to our speed. A local Highway Patrolman got our attention, however, and gave us each a "present" to remember our drive home. It was cruise control the rest of the way home, but still lovely to view.
Still have my "Please Let It Snow!" flag outside our front door and would love to get more before spring. I like the kind we got yesterday. The air full of white, swirling fluff, falling to cover and blanket the ground. Wake up to next day to covered ground, but clear roads. Perfect, I'd have to say.
