So, here's a pop quiz, especially funny for those who are in the North or Midwest US. How much snow does it take to shut down Nashville, Tn?
Just for comparison, that picture was taken at about 12 noon. here is one from about 2:30.
Funny huh? It's not like it was massively coming down and it has basically stopped. Still, it gets me off work for a day. And i get to watch the National Championship which i would have missed otherwise. So far i've been quite productive: vacuumed my apartment, dusted, did laundry and even changed my sheets!
I don't get why people rush to the grocery store (usually to buy milk and bread and eggs) when we get the slightest forecast for snow. I've lived in TN for 10 years. the most snow i've seen here may have kept me indoors for maybe 48 hours. Snow just doesn't stay very long here, even when we get several inches. If you don't have enough food in your house to last 48 hours you really are bad off. I am a single woman and i don't stockpile canned goods or anything but, even if the power goes off, i could feed maybe 4 people, and a couple dogs, for at least a few days. we might end up eating a lot of stuff with crackers that you may not automatically think of (jarred spaghetti sauce, refried beans) but we certainly wouldn't starve.
How do people in your area handle bad weather?
