40 Schools in Williamson County of Tennessee closed today in ANTICIPATION of snow. Are you kidding me!!??? Reports are there MIGHT be a wintry mix coming across Williamson County so they just went ahead and closed the schools JUST IN CASE! I remember a day in elementary school sitting at my desk watching thick snowflakes fall from the sky accumulating all over the ground, walkways and railings...thinking to myself....I wonder if they'll ever let us leave school early because of all the snow? Ooohhh no, we didn't leave early that day and I believe the next day we got to come in maybe an hour late! It was a lot snow for Seattle at that time and yet even then, we toughed it out and the parents trekked through the wintery weather to pick up their kids at the regular dismissal hour. It's cracking me up that here in Tennesssee, where apparently the last time they had snow that accumulated and did anything at all to this city was like 6 years ago!! So now people get so freaked out at the idea of a big scary snowfall that they close schools because something MIGHT happen!
Here's what our forecast looks like with our local news:
Rain likely this afternoon and evening, thundershowers included. Might see changeover to snow late tonight.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with rain and isolated thunderstorms especially late in the day, winds east 5-10 mph. HIGHS: Nashville-46, Lawrenceburg-46, Dickson-46
THURSDAY NIGHT: Rain expected early with a change over to snow/rain mix late, winds south 5-10. Snowbird may well fly on Friday morning. LOWS: Nashville-32, Altamont-30, Dover-30
So the schools closed....makes total sense right? Oh and note to self - look up what the heck "Snowbird may well fly on Friday morning" means. Snowbird? Is this for real?
