We’re not Boston, but it’s been bad here, too. Living in Knoxville, a typical snow is 1 to 1 1/2 inches, which stops the town for a day or two. Two weeks ago we had sleet for two days (about 2 inches), then snow on top of that, about 5 inches. Another snow a week later. Branches and power lines were down, especially to the area west of here where the elevation is higher. Schools and businesses here closed for two weeks. On the plateau (that higher area), they may still be closed. As of last night, some people were still in shelters. They hadn’t been able to live in their homes for over two weeks.
I know all of that. It’s treacherous, killing stuff. The death toll in TN was 30. Most of our problem, though, was the underlying ice and the unusually cold temperatures, so that the ice never melted.
The only time I’ve had enough snow is when we lived in Montana and Minnesota and it was still snowing in April.
Right now, if snow started falling, I would get an unreasonable, irrational feeling of elation. Is it because I’m part Scandinavian? I’m not sure. I wonder if this happens to anyone else.
