I’ve been confused by the rapid changes in Tennessee weather since I got here. Last night as I left work, I was sure there was no way the predicted snow would come. I mean it was 1 am and clearly way too warm to snow. I think the difference is that in Seattle the weather comes right off the ocean and is hung up on the mountains for a while so no sudden changes happen. Whereas, here things sort sweep in from any and all directions and are subject to change at a moment’s notice.
So yes it ‘snowed’ here. On the one hand, I get it. I mean a tiny bit of snow here is much bigger deal because it happens so rarely and no one knows how to drive in it. On the other hand, no one here knows how to drive most of the time anyway and everyone actually acts quite panicked and absurd about the snow.
Luckily I have plenty of work to do here, since I don’t think I’m going to go out today. And right now I have coffee, I have apple cherry cobbler that I took from the restaurant last night and I have fuzzy blanket. Perhaps I will try and preserve this moment as long as possible.
