Yeah, I've heard stories about the famous winter of 84-85. Heard the Caney Fork froze completely over, first time anybody remembered it doing so, and stayed that way for weeks.

That might be nice.

Center Hill and Dale Hollow Lakes had sections where the water was frozen...I remember Livingston Boat Dock had pictures where most of their dock area was frozen from a very hard winter...but I believe that was in the late 70's....
