People like to tease us in Tennessee for shutting everything down for winter storms but we have enough sense not to drive on a solid sheet of ice no matter how hard we get teased. Shutting everything down affords the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of a world of ice crystals. We save gas not driving on ice and we spend time enjoying the magnificent sight of a landscape of glistening diamonds. It won’t last long so we must enjoy it while we can. The temperature will be back up this week end and the wonderful, magical crystal and diamond world will be gone.
Vivaldi’s Spring seemed appropriate music to go with all the ice formations lining the walls of the roadways surrounding Nashville. The ice formations were quite spectacular during the polar vortex. Hopefully, spring is on the way. I’ve had enough cold for one year!
