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:
