First Snow of 2022

Only in Tennessee would it be 78 degrees with a threat of tornadoes on January 1, followed by a widespread snow storm on January 2.

Long gone are the days when the boys would’ve suited up immediately and spent the entire morning and afternoon sledding and building forts. Those were good days!

Now it’s purely for the aesthetic. I always love a good snow in East Tennessee, particularly since they happen infrequently. We enjoyed a full four seasons of proper weather in 2021, so fingers crossed for the same thing this year.

Since the ground was so warm, we didn’t stand a chance of ice on the roads, so life carried on as usually would. But, I wouldn’t mind another snow – in February, perhaps? – with a few more inches and a little more time to enjoy it. By this afternoon, most of it had melted.
