little Mac insider joke there.
the boychick has a snow day today. how many inches were dumped on Nashville, TN to warrant a snow day you ask? zero. zip. nada. how many inches are expected today? more of the same. it`s flurrying outside my window at the moment, but the temperatures are climbing and by midday any chance of flurries will be over.
i come from the tropics and i find this completely laughable. there is absolutely no reason for a snow day. there are reports of patches of ice on the interstates and i`ve managed to find the national weather service advisory for Davidson County:
URGENT – WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NASHVILLE TN
658 AM CST TUE MAR 1 2005
.COLDER AIR WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE REGION TODAY ALONG
WITH GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS. THE COLD AIR…ALONG WITH LINGERING
MOISTURE…WILL CONTINUE TO BRING SNOW SHOWERS TO THE REGION.
ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATIONS WILL VARY DEPENDING ON EXACT LOCATION AND ELEVATION. GENERALLY…MOST AREAS WILL HAVE UP TO 1 INCH OF
ADDITIONAL SNOWFALL WITH GREATER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE AT HIGHER
ELEVATIONS ALONG THE PLATEAU.
this is astounding, there are places where an inch of snow fall accumulates in minutes. i got in the car this morning and i didn`t even have to scrape. there was light powder on the car. i don`t get it.
i shouldn`t let this upset me, i should know better. this is the same city, where i never saw a snow plough on my street when it actually snowed and froze just before Christmas, but there was one clearing the lot of the neighbourhood mall.
That`s all from Nashville where the current weather conditions are partially cloudy and 29F (-2C) with a 30% chance precipitation.
