So glad you're getting some quality Arctic air. Your end of the state was shut out of everything until this past week.

It may not snow another flake this winter, and I'm happy. Anything else is bonus at this point. We walked around the neighborhood last night to see people's snow work. Creative snowmen, and even forts and igloos (partial).

At the same time, I try to be sensitive to our folks in southeast TN (i.e. Chattanooga, etc.). They've truly been shut out this winter. I'm pulling for that area.

You guys definitely got the short end of the stick on everything this winter. I would be so jaded. The pattern in December for East Tennessee never worked out for Chattanooga, and later on, the Nina-enhanced SER locked you out of air cold enough for snow.

All I can say is winter is not over, and we all know it can snow in Chattanooga in March. But I completely understand how you feel, and wouldn't blame you at all if you wanted to trade any chances of winter weather for warm spring days. Combined with the Easter Sunday tornado last year, you guys have really been bent over by Mother Nature. Time for a big snow down there that doesn't vanish in a few hours.

Saw today that Nashville had 7 days below freezing this past week. Chattanooga had zero. That is some very rare stuff for Arctic air to be stuck like that so very close, but never quite getting over the Plateau. We had 2 nights at 21, and a 2 hour round of moderate sleet at 33 degrees. No white ground.

Between two sunny days this weekend, with a few hours above freezing today and even warmer (in the 50s) tomorrow plus rain on Sunday night, that should go a long way toward taking care of most of the ice and snow on the roads, I would think. However, it

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

Impressive.  It even matched the historic winter of '78.

What shocked me... when we think of the historic winter stretches of old in these parts... 1951, all those snowy winters in the 1960s and late 1970s, 1985, etc.- none of those years featured a stretch of sub freezing temperatures that lasted as long as what we just came out of. I was about sure I remembered stretches like that in my life. Guess not.

Johnson City only got below freezing 1 time at night during that stretch when middle and West Tennessee were setting records for number of days with snow cover and staying below freezing.  That is the bizarre thing. Not that you were colder but the number of consecutive days plus as much as 40 degrees different many of those days
