Pretty amazing just couple days or so ago we were sitting near 0 . Today 57 for a high . Remarkable recovery .
It is amazing. It felt great today. I actually had the windows up in the house & down in the car.

As I'm sure the Williamson County school teacher that asked is aware- schools are closed in that system tomorrow. Even with today's spring-like weather (and those sunny 50s sure did feel spring-like), neighborhood streets (at least around Nolensville) still had a fair amount of slush, although it was melting fast by late this afternoon.

Sure enough, as we were discussing earlier, I'm noticing the school report scroll on TV has some schools as "virtual learning day" or "remote learning day" tomorrow. I suspect that's going to be a new term in the lexicon from here on. For the kids' sake, I hope "snow day" school closings continue to be a thing. But, depending on the system or county's capabilities, virtual learning is certainly a new option in a lot of cases. Maybe, this is a good thing that saves some throwaway of snow days or the logistics of delayed openings because of patchy ice on rural roads.

As a said previously I wonder how that might play out during severe weather season.  Now that is an option, would we see a lot more virtual learning days on severe weather days?

The massive societal changes this alone could cause are unbelievable alone.

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

I suspect so.

Had a legit squall come through this morning.  Intense wind and heavy rain that was being blown sideways.  Power blinked a few times.  The wind had calmed down a bit, but heavy rain continues behind the squall.  A super soaker of a front coming through this morning.

In Johnson City we have had heavy rain and very strong winds the past hour. They are showing rain here 12 of the next 15 days. I suspect the ridge will continue to block fronts and they will hang up and never cross the mountain. Not a fun pattern for us to be stuck in for the foreseeable future

We'll be headed to Middle TN this weekend to help clean up downed trees on my parents' farm from the winter storms of the past week. Looking at the upcoming weather I wonder how much more tree damage we can expect across Tennessee with saturated soil, winds, and trees leafing out and getting more vulnerable to storm damage. This is looking like another spring where the kayaks may come in handy on city streets!

That February sun angle  ::blowtorch:: and sixty degree weather. Mmm, mmm, good!

Yesterday was the first time I went running in the snow in 50 degree weather. It was kind of like running on sand.

Like I said a few weeks back, this time of year is the time where weather is the most dynamic in our climate. We can have snowstorms, severe weather, subfreezing temperatures, sunshine and seventy degrees all in the same week.

March winds starting a little early this year.  With the sun breaking out and temps in the 50s, it feels like a typical breezy March day.   Now if I only had a kite.

I ordinarily hate wind. I guess it's my animal instinct. Wind bothers me more than any other type of weather. But I'm loving it today (and Wednesday, which should be breezy also). I'll take all the wind I can get to help the sun dry up some of this mud! It's been a long time since we had back-to-back-to-back winter storms like we had this month and I forgot just how much mud results from all of that freezing/thawing and wintry precipitation.

The NWS officially recorded 8.9" of snow in Oneida, making it the northern plateau's snowiest February in 15 years and the single snowiest month in 5 years. (Those totals are underdone; most areas received more like 14-16", but the 8.9" is what'll go down in the record books.)
