    Dude! What was that? Six inches in three hours? In Memphis?

    We had snow at the beginning of the month. A lot of snow. And of course most of the country came to a halt.

    And it's only pretty until it turns to ice or muddy brown slush.

    It's about to be muddy brown mush, because our temps never stay low enough just to let it stay for a day or two. Stupid Memphis weather. [face_frustrated]

    It snowed just enough to cover my yard down here in Hernando.

    I'm glad to know that Memphis isn't the only city to grind to a halt when it snows, Ben. Do folks in London rush off to buy bread and milk when it starts snowing? For some reason everyone down here does!

    We still have about five inches left on the ground even after the thaw. I looked out at 3 am at the pile of snow on top of the outdoor bar and I swear there was at least 10 inches of snow. It was wild!

    I'm shocked, Nicki- Usually Hernando gets all the pretty white stuff when Memphis doesn't.

    Lin and I just got back from the grocery store, and the snow is completely gone down here.

    This is what it looked like around 6-ish last night at our house:

    We probably got another 3 inches after that, but I didn't get pics before it started melting off this morning.

    Nicki and I caught a little bit of hail when we were out in Millington after we left Jason's, then after a quick stop at Tim and Traci's the hail really started coming down. It was snowing its butt off by the time we hit the interstate, and really coming down after stopping by Comics and Collectibles. After a quick stop at Target we headed back to Hernando. The further south we went the less we saw.

    Didn't see any real accumulation until the next morning.

    Saw some ice on the way into work here and there- underpasses and beside buildings.
