It’s just over a month into 2016 and Mother Nature has already blessed us with a blizzard. Fortunately Chattanooga didn’t get hit too badly in the last round, but my friends and family in other states got hit with over three feet of the white stuff.
Winter stinks. It’s just not a fun three months. It’s cold, gray, dreary and colorless. And then there’s snow and icky winter weather. As soon as the s-word is mentioned on TV, my mind goes into overdrive. Not to mention the weather forecasts change every day, if not every hour; snow accumulation ranges aren’t always descriptive or accurate enough.
So my area is supposed to get six to ten inches of snow. What does six inches of snow look like? How do I prepare? How long can I expect to stay inside?
What does that even mean? #SouthernProblems
I’m often reluctant to admit that I lived above the Mason-Dixon Line for a while, but that time does come in handy in the winter. I hate winter and snow, but I know how to deal with it.
