It's been a cold winter, lots of cozy fires and snow in Sewanee. Today, the tables are turned and Nashville/Murfreesboro is expecting snow tonight and just rain on the mountain. This afternoon, Murfreesboro was at 37º and Sewanee, a much warmer and foggy 51º.
While forecasts don't show any terribly cold weather in the near future, early March usually gives a late season snow before it's all over.
With several over night lows in the single numbers and two, below zero, I think this has been the coldest winter since 2009-10. I'm really happy that Sky Castle in Sewanee has proven to be a very efficient and cozy cold weather home. Electric bills never higher than the $140s, however, I fear what the next bill will bring in Murfreesboro. I expect it could be pushing $400.
Here are some photos of the recent bitter cold.
