I was fortunate enough to be driving home last night right as the light rain changed over to snow and all of Nashville went totally insane. I imagine the internal monologue went something like this.....
Wow, that rain sure is pretty and...wait a minute..that's snow! Snow! Holy cow! I suddenly need bread, milk, beer and some videos! I'd better rush to my nearest grocery shopping establishment and pick up all these vital items! Oh look, that guy in the new Honda is actually driving safely and not following right on the bumper of the person in front of him in case we have to suddenly stop. He must be reserving that area of road for me so I can get to the grocery and video stores faster. That sure is kind of him! Let me pull over there right NOW!
OK, so maybe that's not exactly how it went, but I have a feeling it's about how it went.
And I will give you that once I got home and didn't have to contend with the insanity of driving, the snow coming down was beautiful. I will also admit that I was worried during Scrubs
when they came on and said there would be "no significant accumulation." Yeah, that said that back in Knoxville before the Blizzard of '93. I had visions of two-feet of snow and being off work, relaxing in front of the TV with a nice fire blazing and watching DVD box sets for a couple of days. Alas, it turned out to not be and it was icy enough to be dangerous for a while but it melted when the sun came up...
