Our house is right on top of a hill. Actually, you have to go up, then down, then up again to get to my house. I find it amusing that so many people get up the first really big hill, go down it, and then stop. It doesn't work that way. My husband and I have had to do a few "rescues" and had some people park at our house after they simply gave up.

Anderson County has canceled school for Wednesday as well as Athens Blount, Fentress, Grainger, Hawkins, Maryville City, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe and Sweetwater.

We haven't heard from Boston's own James McIntyre - otherwise known as Jimmy Mac in South Boston - regarding Knox County, yet. He likes to keep us guessing.

I bulk shop, so other than milk and bread (for some reason, the kids are PLOWING through bread this month!) and an extra round bale for the horses, I had no stockin' up to do. Regular ol' comfort foods here, chili, soup, baked pasta and the like. I am gettin' sick of snow- the kids' last full week of school was Dec. 13-17. They went for ONE day after that- Dec 20. Our last snow day was yesterday, so I guess today starts cutting into their vacation.
Not to mention, with my truck in the shop, we're four wheel drive-less so Greg is staying in Knoxville so he can get to work tomorrow. (a frequent occurrence here with the snow, apparently!)

Not only did we get ALOT of snow last night here in west Tennessee but the drive to work this morning brought something very strange. FROZEN FOG! If that wasnt scary enough 4 deer came out of the fog in front of my truck! Good thing I'm old enough and wise enough to slow my a** down!

Yeah, I've seen freezing fog here in southern Middle TN--it can be fun, can't it?
We got about 1.5 inches last night.
Supposed to get another round Sunday/Monday.

I've seen The National Weather Service report that we were having freezing fog in our area but it just looked a bit foggy. I never went out to check, though. Was the fog actually ice particles?

Frankly, I don't know if it is or not--it just looks like regular fog to me, so I guess it's still probably water vapor and droplets. What I do know is that it acts to some extent like freezing rain in that everything it touches, which is anything outside, gets coated in ice. Usually a fairly thin veneer of ice, but enough to make roads nice and slick.

Little bit of snow and a lot of icey roads here in the Tri-Cities area this morning.

They moved our snow forecast back to Tuesday/Wednesday. Looks like it'll be too warm to amount to anything.

Thank goodness- I swear, i'm experiencing cabin fever. I can't wait until this white crap is gone, gone, gone and the grass is green again.

And it's only late January.

*sigh*
