Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Yes,  and the zone forecasts are literally saying blizzard.   This might be a once in a lifetime event here.   

I'm obviously hoping they issue the BZW (as a wx nut)  but I do think it could make a huge difference in keeping people home.   That's a big headline to say you're still going to work regardless.

I think they may be skeptical at this point of how long of a duration the heaviest snow will occur.

WOW, Heavy sleet has just about all changed to heavy
snow here at my house in Weakley county. Accumulating quick and the wind is whipping.

I would be happy if we could just transition over to snow.

Sleet beginning to fall, might have had a few flakes mixed in.

All it takes is considerable snow with frequent gusts to 35 and visibilities of 1/4 mile or less for a minimum of 3 hours.   

Many blizzard warnings are issued with much less accumulation and lower rates than what we are projected to get (and those are issued in the midwest/Alaska/etc.)


Regardless,  it's not my decision to make and I don't have their knowledge.

Earlier changeover to snow (around 8-9 AM). Still looking like 4-6" of snow for Gallatin.

I dont know how long it will last but we just had blizzard conditions for about 30 seconds. Complete white out with the blowing snow.  ::snowman::

The HRRR starts dissolving the heaviest of it over MEM by 12Z. Just saying I think they're too scared to pull the trigger.
