Today was made of suck

I'm really surprised I haven't gotten a rejection today, since everything else has gone wrong. I guess it helps sometimes to have just one story out.

We're supposed to get a little bit of snow overnight or tomorrow morning--like, less than an inch, but that's exciting! because it's snow! in December! If we do get snow here, it's almost always in late January or early February. The last several years we haven't had any snow to speak of at all, but it's been so rainy this year that I'm hoping we'll have at least one day where we get a few inches of accumulation (even if it melts the next day, as it always does).

If it snows a whole lot overnight, they might close the college where I work, which means I would be able to sleep in tomorrow morning. Since I've been staying up way too late all week to read, I could really use a sleeping-in day. I suspect lack of sleep may have contributed to my rotten day. (Oh yeah, you think?)

Wow, it snows in Tennessee?

I was there once, back in the '80's visiting my Aunt. She lived in Dyer. It was August and it was over 9o deg. every day. I just assumed it never snowed there...

We are expecting a lot of snow on Sunday. The ground is usually covered in snow for about 4 months every year. The novelty wore off.

Have fun in the snow!

You can have the all the snow you need. Fingers crossed.

I grew up in Connecticut and lived in Boston. Snow in the midwest is much cuter : P

If we get any snow, I'll send it your way.

What's this snow you keep talking about?

Alan--Sure, it snows occasionally. But mostly we have lovely, lovely hot, humid weather. Mmmm, 90+ degree August days, I loves them so. I'm not sure where Dyer is, which means it's probably middle or west TN. Their weather patterns are a lot different from east TN's because we've got the mountains.

Aaron--We got about 1/4 inch overnight! I'm hoping it'll keep snowing.

Natalie--Ah, but people here freak totally out when the weather man mentions snow. That's awfully cute. :)

Cate--Try to send it along on a day when I work.

Jameson--I'm not sure. I think it has something to do with rain. :)

Dyer is in the NW corner. North of Jackson, South of Union City.

We are getting our first big hit of the winter tonight and all day tomorrow. 40-50cm (16-20 in.)

We have only received one snow this year, and that was in October, the earliest ever in recorded history. It is just darn cold here, 13 degrees last night.

K.C. Shaw said...

Alan--I can't even conceive of that much snow. The most we've had here was 18" during the Blizzard of '93, which shut down the entire region for a couple of weeks. I hope your snow is as pretty as our little snow was this morning (it's already melted) and more fun as our blizzard.

Jamie--13 degrees, eek! Bundle up!

Danielle Ferries said...

Ahhh, snow...ahhh sleep-ins...I hope today is better than yesterday.

K.C. Shaw said...

Thanks, although I suspect tomorrow's going to be just as crappy--AND I have a cold now. Oh well, it's almost Christmas and I'll have two weeks off.

I was starting to wonder about you, wanting snow and all, until you got to the part about sleeping in.

Anne Spollen said...

Love the blog title. Very YA.

K.C. Shaw said...

Carrie--I mostly like to look at snow from inside where it's warm, preferably with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book in my hands.

Anne--It reflects my mental age, which is about 14. :)
