Ice Storm 2015

Well this week has been a pleasantly unpleasant week of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures. Pleasant because I only ended up having to go to class one day; unpleasant because well… ice and cold? There’s just not much pleasant about that.

Knoxville got its first wave of snow and sleet on Monday, decided to stay until Tuesday, and Wednesday a full blown snowstorm. Thankfully the snow/ice stopped coming Thursday but instead decided to make Knoxville the coldest day in many years (well below freezing). And there was no heat in my first class, so it’s safe to say we were chilly.

I drove to Nashville for a wedding this weekend and it’s actually much worse here! The wedding’s theme “winter wonderland” couldn’t be more applicable. There is snow everywhere and many layers of ice all over the place. My parents’ driveway and every driveway/neighborhood in Brentwood is completely covered in ice and the snow is not the light fluffy snow we all love, it’s hard.

Although I hear the Ice Storm of 1994 was worse, I was only two at the time so I’m going to go ahead and say this is the worst ice storm I’ve ever seen. Trees are falling, power lines are down and you can literally ice skate on the driveways. If you’re not having to face ice on the roads, you’re having to dodge blocks of ice flying at you from the cars in front of you. Luckily rain is coming to melt away all our woes, so hopefully we will get some relief for a couple of days.

At least, somebody enjoyed the snow this week…

Anyways, I hope everyone stays safe and warm!
