Winter Storm Advisory - Cont.

It's hard to tell exactly how much snow we got because of the freezing rain, but it's enough. The freezing rain continues, and we only have some small branches down, but I am sure there will be more. This much snow at one time is a rare site in central Tennessee, and there are no snow removal companies. I'm not sure I've even seen a snow blower for sale here. Yesterday, DH bought a snow shovel. I'm not sure how much use he'll put it to today with the ice.

The pictures are taken from almost the same angle. Click on them for more detail.  The bottom one was taken this morning. Yes, it is that gray out there. Have I said how much I detest snow?

One really bizarre site yesterday was a man in a T-Bird convertible WITH THE TOP DOWN in the snow storm.

Winter Storm Advisory

I hate those three words. I thought I left them in a box in Livonia, Michigan. Blah. This is central Tennessee, and our average yearly snowfall is about eight inches.

We are expecting 6-10" of snow this weekend.  Groan. DH even went out and bought a snow shovel (we gave the snow blower to a friend in Michigan.) So far we have an inch. Maybe the forecasters have blown this way out of proportion or maybe we will get that half inch of ice on top of the snow?

Tennesseeans drive like rednecks 90% of the time, can hardly wait to see how they handle all this snow!

A Taste of Tennessee - Boston's

DH and I love to find restaurants that are a little off the beaten path or not chain restaurants. One of these is Boston's in Crossville. We found out about this little gem of a lunch restaurant from a chance encounter with a Michigander at the model railroad exhibit at the outlet mall in Crossville, Tennessee.

DH had a burger, soup and a salad, but I had one of the lunch specials which was a cup of garden vegetable soup, a salad and a half sandwich. I chose the chicken salad sandwich which was on pumpernickel. It was certainly delicious. The soup was hot and the salad fresh. And it was reasonably priced at less than $20 including drinks and tip.

If you are in the area try it:

Cousin Carol is up today! Catch her here. You'll get a little glimpse of how the Wild Ones work! Or is it play? Or maybe just insanity?
