Winter Snowfall

Mother Nature has not been kind to the lower Midwest, the south and most of the eastern United States this week. Wednesday came with a sheet of ice to all of middle Tennessee. The temperatures climbed above freezing very very early Thursday so the ice melted quickly. Late Thursday evening rain began followed by snow in the wee hours of Friday morning. I awoke to find four inches of snow. As the day wore on, Winter Storm Jonas dumped nine inches of snow in northeast Nashville, specifically Hendersonville, and almost as much south of the city. Southern Kentucky received a foot of snow in some parts.


Stepping out on the patio to capture this image, reminded me of just how cold it is. While I have to dig out my car today or tomorrow, I am not looking forward to it. The temperatures are in the twenties with wind chill in the upper teens. Notice the pine cones hanging from the tree? All of the fir trees have tons of pine trees hanging down from them around my place. So beautiful. Take care if you are in the path of Jonas. Stay warm, stay safe. ENJOY!

Photographer's Note: My blog was remodeled earlier in the week. One wrong key stroke and my layout and template was gone forever. I thought I had a backup copy, but I could not find it. Things are more or less back to normal, give or take. Back up your template by saving the HTML code under Template. All you need do is go inside the template HTML and copy and paste it to a word file. Since I know some CSS code I was able to recreate the template for the most part. Back soon.

  2. Snow everywhere in so many states, all traffic banned in New York City, power outages, stranded motorists, from down here in small NZ this is so hard to comprehend. Stay safe in Tennessee, and elsewhere. Lovely tree with drooping branches.

  4. Those trees are really laden with snow! I thought of you when I heard of people stranded in Kentucky. I know you're in TN now, but still hearing Kentucky news reminds me of you. I've heard that if trees have a lot of pine cones it means that they've been stressed.

  5. Oh, I remember this storm. I was going to fly back to New England that day...but I decided it may be prudent to stay in Florida for a couple more days.
