Walked out to knock the snow off the satellite dish this morning and expected to sink down into the 4 or so inches of snow we got last night. I didn't. I walked on top of it as it cracked under my feet. A weird feeling indeed. I've seen one vehicle drive by on our otherwise well-trafficked rode all day.

Our electric went out this morning for a few mins. Then this evening it went out for about 45 mins. I walked out side, it does feel odd. It looks like snow your walking on, but hear all the crunching and cracking under your feet.

As a few know, Crossville, TN gets a lot of snow at times. It snows every winter but snowfall is only counted for accumulated snow. There are lots of times the ground temp is 33*-35* & it will snow hard for an entire day but not really accumulate so a half foot could fall but no accumulation other than some on grassy areas so it's always nice to see it snow there. They also get more snowfall than weather reports are willing to admit because they try to keep people from Atlanta that rarely see snow from making the five hour drive up to see snow.

Crossville gets more snow than any other City in TN under 4 thousand feet. Above 4500 feet lots of snow falls. In fact, TN has a mountain, I forgot name of it but the height of it & angle, direction is so that it is the Southern most point to get actual Lake Effect snows off the Great Lakes. Few know this fact. New Found Gap gets about 65" of snow per year & is one mile high but this mountain in question is passed that area. Newfound Gap is a lookout area open a lot in winter because it has the main road from TN to NC but to the right at Clingman's Dome, that is closed from Oct-April because of so much snow & ice is very dangerous. Northerners get snowed in & freeze to death each year in those mountains because they come down from New England thinking TN is mild in winter when TN is anything but mild. Even Chattanooga where I once lived has a humid bone chilling cold & it too gets more snow than what it reports for metro area. Airport doesn't get too much but again, they don't want people racing up to see snow since is dangerous for those not used to driving in it. Chattanooga got 40" in most metro areas last winter. Crossville got more. That one mountain gets over 20 FEET per year!!

I still like Rochester, NY more. We get 100", four seasons & a mild summer unlike the hot summers in TN but you need to make at least 100k per year to live in a good area since other areas are higher crime so the salary of an RN not being much would put one in a poor area. I make over 500k but I run a corporation & work long hours & still don't make that million a year other CEO's make so not really fair but is life.
