February Begins on a Snowy Note

 

Sunrise on February 1st
dawned on a snowy
landscape across
much of Middle Tennesse
:


Snowfall amounts that fell Thursday night ranged
from a dusting in northwestern areas, around
Clarksville, to between 1/4 and 3/4 inch over
a broad swath west of the Cumberland Plateau, to
between 1 and 2 inches at a number of locations
along the Plateau itself. The highest snowfall amount
reported so far is 2.3 inches at Monteagle, in southeastern
Grundy County, although a 2" report from Wilder, in
southeastern Overton County, came in a close second.

Below are some photos taken by Ross Binkley, on Buck

Mountain, on the east side of Cookeville (elevation
approximately 1425 ft. Thanks for sending them in! Buck.
They're really beautiful.
