Nice little snow there Michael! West TN was missed again, and probably will be tonight and tomorrow too, though the NWS posts a slight chance of flurries. Oh well! Bring on those 50s!

Schools closed AGAIN? Wow. Good thing we just got the Wii hooked up! A good remedy for Cabin Fever. Though I really was looking forward to NOT having to share it tomorrow...
