A Beautiful Night In Memphis

Recommended Posts

Three years ago Memphis received snow for the first time since I moved here in 1997. Tonight we have a blizzard! 6" of snow and it's still coming down! The city is basically shutdown and the silence is deafing. We have at least a few more hours left in the storm and the temperatures are still dropping.

What a beautiful sight!

Sometimes we who get at least some snow every winter and those who get it regularly,  forget how a new fallen snow looks, especially at night. Beautiful.  (unless you have to go out in it or get stuck in traffic because of it)

You can have it!!!!  I for one am sick and freaking tired of the snow.  We've had enough here in Northern IL to last me a good long time.

Oh and 6" of snow and we'd still be working the next day and stores would be open!  Wimps.   ;)

It's nice to see someone in the south appreciate the "good" parts of winter weather.  I need 4 season's wherever I reside.

Stay safe on the roads everyone, I know you folks aren't exactly prepared or experienced for this stuff.  Gather the family, it's "stay home" time.

And for all you truck owners down there,...a reminder

4 wheel drive allows you to get the traction needed to accelerate.  Has NOTHING to do with STOPPING!!  Increase your following distances, allow for a bigger "space cushion".

That would merely slow us down,...."stopping" anything is going to take 15-20 inches before they begin to give it thought,lol

I wish everyone would follow this advice, especially those soccer moms in their big SUV's going 70 mph on four inches of snow.  I just shake my head and give them plenty of room.  Something's gonna happen and it ain't gonna be good!!! ;D

This is for those times where we up here would say it is 25* and snowing and you would give us a weather report of 65* and sunny.

See, I look at it totally different.  If you are open enough to step outside and appreciate it, experience it, like RW explained, I think this gives folks a chance to understand us a little better.  

All the "Ha Ha's" and "it's 75 and sunny" reports are all unlanded punches with me.  I feel bad for what the mono-climate people are missing.

A winter wonderland!

We ended up with 6-8" around the area and woke to clear skies and

24 degrees. The blanket of snow is uniform and the trees look like

something on a postcard from a far away land (Rhode Island?)

It's just B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!

Ranging in some parts from 4-8 inches around here RW.  I have an uncle in Batesville who got 12''+. It really can be a beautiful sight.

Do I like it when we get our annual snow, of course, but I'm also the kind of guy that tries to wear shorts year around.  

I'm going to try and go enjoy it before it all melts.

Have fun and be safe.

Hey, RW, please send some of that about 650 miles East.

I love snow. I'm with LBH on this - want four distinct seasons. We haven't had a good snow here in central in NC 5 or 6 years.

Nothing I enjoy more that getting out and walking in the snow.

No no no Matt, you need one season where the temp ranges from 50-60 degrees so there is a good lipless crank and jerkbait bite.

Plus, that weather is a little warm for smallies  :)
