I think the side roads are going to be iced over for a while... probably into the weekend with the next system.

I mean.... this sounds like a joke.  I wasn't aware that people had to spend large parts of the winter in the 60s without power but that must have been the case because power companies are not equipped for this. 
They got rid of coal, stopped building nuclear, and went to wind farms. The windmills are frozen solid, and they

The only other one I would include just based on memories as a kid is Ron Howes.

I moved here a couple of years before Bill Hall retired. I think I even met him once. Good man. I met Davis Nolan a couple of times. Very nice, too.

Bill Hall in the 70's and 80's was pretty honed in with middle tennessee weather he could often pick out the fine details that others couldn't. The weathermen and women back then would give their personal opinions on air much more, and were also willing to step out and make a bold call. I remember going to channel 2 and see a 1-3 inch prediction and channel 4 might have a 3-6 inch prediction and channel 5 might call for flurries. Sometimes they were all on the same page, but many times they weren't. I think Bill Hall was the most consistent weatherman nashville ever had given the number of winter storms he had to watch and make calls for. ::popcorn:: ::snowman::

He was very much like james spann in the fact he knew the territory so well and each little town and county.

Whoa.  Where did you hear this?  Entergy is my provider.

It sounds fishy. Mississippi has the newest nuclear plant built (1985) in the US, Grand Gulf. (TVA did add another reactor at Watts Bar in 2016.) Grand Gulf is the most powerful single reactor in the US. It

Snow has continued lightly all morning. The February sun is quickly taking care of what small dusting has accumulated despite cloudy skies and temps in the low 20s.
Winter 2009-10 Snowfall: 11.5 in. :)
Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)
Winter 2011-12: Trace
Winter 2012-2013: 0.25 in.
Winter 2013-14: 10.6 (9.5 on 2/12)
Winter 2014-2015: 10.25 in.
Winters 2015-2019: basically nothing
Winter 2019-2020:
2/8/20: 4.25

I measured 1.5" total of frozen precip. About 1.1" was sleet, and 0.4" was fluffy dry snow.

Was surprised to measure .5" of fluff on the snowboard this evening after the almost constant light snow today. That gives me a 2.2" total for the event with 1.5" of sleet, .2" of freezing rain, and .5" of snow.
