Ice storm #1 was really hard on my Murfreesboro neighborhood. Trees and branches down everywhere but my property did ok. Arriving in Sewanee on Friday night brought a blast of beautiful big snow flakes just around dusk in storm #2. I'm happy that I brought my truck because driving conditions required a 4x4, especially off the main road. After putting a new starter and battery in my truck, I'm really happy to have it.
UPDATE: The big Sewanee snow of 2/25-26 I wasn't about to miss out on so I rescheduled some students to Friday and enjoyed some 4x4 touring in the 5" of snow we got. Murfreesboro only got an inch. The town of Sewanee got 3-4", less on the north side of the mountain, more on the SW facing slopes like at my place. I got up early on Thursday and hiked around by the Sewanee Cross and plowed through virgin snow all the way to the end of Brakefield road. So glad to have a 4x4 that takes me into these wonderful wintry scenes.
My road was still snow covered on Sat. 2/28 while the roads around the Domain of the University were mostly dry.
Another winter storm looks likely for Wednesday night!!!! It's your birthday present, John P.
