If you live in Tennessee you probably leave your TV on all night in case there are tornadoes and the TV will sound the warning siren to wake you up. I think the night time tornadoes are the deadliest because people are asleep and don’t know to take cover. I take them seriously, I’ve seen several over the years and I’ve seen the total destruction they can leave behind. If I hear the sirens I take cover.
So this morning as I’m getting dressed the weatherman breaks in and announces we are under a severe weather alert – but this alert is for an ice storm. All the counties north of Nashville were having freezing rain and ice. Northbound I-65 was basically shut down with gridlock from all the accidents up toward the Kentucky border.
Thankfully, I take I-65 Southbound and had no trouble getting to work. But I feel for all those poor people stuck on the other side of the road and the extremely long delays they faced in getting to their destinations this morning.
