What a difference a day makes! On Tuesday the region basked in 80 degrees of summer-like warmth and sunshine. Barbecue grills were dragged out and fired up, just as area residents hustled to find “cool” clothing to don for this brief taste of seasons yet to come.
Adhering to the adages of the weatherwise, if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute.
So it is that northern Middle Tennessee saw temperature drop by 50 degrees, viewed a sky of thickening clouds, and watched in awe as winter took what may be its last punch of the 2008-09 season.

In New England, this kind of snowfall is “sugar snow,” a late season wet snowfall that comes even as the springtime rush of sap is surging through the sugar maples, sap that is gathered in buckets, pouring into wood-fired arches to boil — 40 gallons of sap makes a gallon of syrup in a 24/7 marathon that only works in late winter on the cusp of spring, when days are warm and nights are cold. Light golden Grade A syrup is considered the finest, with the dark amber B (or less) syrup as the “end of season fare (I actually like the darker richer taste of the Grade B). Today’s snow was a light coating of “sugar snow.”

After Sunday’s balmy, breezy 50s, literally the calm before the storm, the NWS has issued both an ice storm and hazardous weather warnings for the area as a cold front is poised to sweep through the mid state toda, plummeting temperatures and setting the stage for today’s drizzle and rain to freeze on contact with trees, roads and bridges, creating dangerous travel conditions. «Read the rest of this article»
