I Blame Al Gore

We woke to snow showers in Nashville this morning. And yes, I blame Al Gore. You see, he’s speaking at Belmont University this afternoon and I have a ticket to see him. And it just seems like whenever Al Gore speaks somewhere and the calendar says winter, there’s a weather event. I remember several years ago Mr. Beale and I were in New York City one winter weekend and Al Gore was in town to give a climate change address. Wouldn’t you know, a massive arctic front descended from Canada and gripped the city in snow and single-digit temperatures. Mr. Beale and I got some pictures for our Christmas card in Central Park and then spent the rest of the trip indoors.

So, I don’t know what kind of karmic baggage Al Gore is carrying around but I’ve half a mind to suggest an exorcism.

Anyway, I’m just hoping the snow will be gone by this afternoon when the event begins. I know it’s pathetic, but we just don’t get much snow in Nashville these days so when we do, it’s a big deal. Let me remind you of this picture from 2010; no, Nashville doesn’t know how to “do” snow.

Yesterday I promised some photos of the snow, so without further ado:

  1. It makes one wonder about global warming… now they’ve changed it to climate change, which is the more correct term, in the first place.

    I drove from Memphis to Nashville yesterday, and while the roads were bone-dry, there was quite a heavy dusting of snow on everything else. Decided to spend the night in Murfreesboro instead of pushing on to Atlanta, and just looked out the window! Yeah, that’s some snow. Wonder what driving through the mountains will be like….

    That is not snow.

    That is very heavy frost.

    I just took my roommate out for a jaunt. His ground clearance is about 3″ and he propoises through the snow when it’s more than six inches deep. He keeps stopping and looking back to be sure I’m nearby in case I have to pull him off some wolverine that he’s mauling.
