Default What Does The Sun Look Like, Again?

I seem to remember it as this big yellowish ball in the sky.

Is this the gloomiest 4 months in Tennessee history, or what? People from Florida, living here now, must be jumping off bridges. I cursed weather.com this morning because in the hourly forecast, it said the sun was supposed to show up starting at 9:00A. It's now 10:00A and I'm tapping my fingers.

It's not like it's the rain or anything. It's just 10 days in a row of gloom followed by maybe 4 hours of sunshine and then the cycle repeats.

Okay, in the summer when we have relentless heat and sunshine maybe I'll look back fondly on this winter...or not.

Laura,
We miss the sun too. My houseplants are looking feeble and dropping leaves like crazy. It will show up soon, I'm sure of it.

We definitely haven't had such a long stretch of dreary weather since I returned to TN in '02. And up here in the Tri-Cities, it's been even worse than in the Knoxville area. Since the end of November, we've had cloudy or mostly cloudy skies 79% of the time (normal average during that period is 56%) compared to y'all's 71%.

As of 11:00 this morning, it looks like we'll have a few more hours of gray (http://www.accuweather.com/us/radar/rs/se/radar.asp?play=true - broken link), then hopefully blue skies!

Laura, I see it. The sun has spilled into my office window. I hope it's in your area, too!

Yes. I feel bad for the folks that have only been here a year. This is not what it is usually like. In fact, the previous two years had the worst drought in history.

I'm here to report that The National Weather Service says that tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and almost 70 degrees. Not partly sunny. Sunny.

It looks like it will rain on Sunday, but for the most part it will be sunny more times than not for the next seven days.

Hallelujah.

Knoxville gets all the breaks. The clouds are thinning here.

I checked the radar. It looks like it is going to be sunny in all of Tennessee very, very soon.

Woohoo!

My 3 dogs have dragged their cushions out into the back yard and are laying on them like mud turtles soaking up the sun.

What is this "sun" you speak of? I've heard legends of it here in middle Alabama that date back to a historical period commonly known as "Last Summer". Of course I have no windows in my office and haven't been out in a while...

IT'S HERE! THE SUN IS REAL AND IT HAS RETURNED TO US!
