A Spell of Wicked Bad Weather

It's not technically winter yet, but folks around these parts are bracing for a major winter storm headed this way. Right now it's raining, has been since about 1:00 PM. As you can see from the weather report below, the rain continues into the night and then turns to snow after midnight.

Sunday's high will be 29 degrees Farenheit, with light snow continuing through the day. And take a look at Sunday night: the low will be 14 with the wind chill factor pushing it down to Zero, or 5 below. And then we get a 10 on Monday night.

Geez. I thought this was Tennessee. I wonder where Tennessee's least favorite son is now--that would be rich fat cat citizen Al G, formerly known as the Prophet of Warming. Doncha think he's probably sipping a tall boy, smoking one of those expensive ceegars, chatting up some new lady, and kicking back in his big California mansion?
