Here in TN, we have been in the 70F's for high and 50F's at night for low, but now its dropping back to 30-40F's and 20-30F's this week.

It was beautiful out and I got one day of outdoor bike maintenance done, but the rest I worked and slept through.

The only thing worse the ice, is snow ON TOP OF ice....that really sucks. And that's what Vet has right now.

Black ice is as bad as it gets. Snow on top actually gives it a little bit of traction.

I just love that Macho. It was 74 Wednesday when I walked out of my office then 5 minutes later when I stepped out, it was 50. It got to 20 last night and will be about the same tonight but tomorrow it is supposed to be sunny and 50. Great day for the last man standing race!

Tonight will be the fun stuff,extremely cold and lots of blowing/drifting snow.

Power was off for many around here most the night. Many pLaces never opened for business, or like here, only a few people could even get to work.

Ice with a snow topping, always fun.

Jim is lucky it went west of them.

Yep, I sure didn't think it was going to though, you go just 50 miles west of me and they got HAMMERED.

Andy, I'm really surprised you didnt get anything there. The way it looked in the beggining, the whole place was gonna get hammered.
