Ice & Snow Photos: Winter Storm of March 2-3 2014

A winter storm started pushing into Middle
Tennessee during the afternoon and evening
hours of March 2, 2014, and brought
with it a deluge of sleet, as well as
some freezing rain and snow.

Sleet accumulations turned out to be one
of the big travel hazards, with a report of
6 inches of sleet 2 miles northeast of
Clarksville, at 200 am on the morning of
March 3rd! Some roads became virtually
impassable over parts of Stewart and
Montgomery Counties.

Freezing rain accumulations of 1/4 to 1/2 inch
were common over much of northwestern
and north-central Middle Tennessee, bringing
down tree limbs in some areas and knocking out
power to a number of folks (most notably in
Dickson County).

Northwestern Middle Tennessee saw the
change-over first, and the photo below (shot
on the evening of the 2nd), shows the ice
accumulation along a deck railing in Clarksville.

Then, after the sun came up on March 3rd, the impact
of the storm became more evident (especially over
northwestern and north-central Middle Tennessee):

early light of dawn...
