franklin tn real estate: Snow in Franklin TN - 01/31/10 03:02 PM
Snow in Franklin TN is an unusual sight.  It only snows here once or twice a year and usually melts within a day.  However, the combination of snow and ice with temperatures dropping into the teens at night has caused this latest snow to stay for a few days.  After being couped up in the house because of bad road conditions, I decided to venture out.  This is what I saw on the way home.  I didn't have my camera with me so I snapped these photos with my iphone. You can't tell in this picture but the trees in the … (7 comments)

franklin tn real estate: It's Snowing in Franklin TN - 01/29/10 08:45 AM
It's snowing in Franklin TN.  Having grown up in the Chicago area, driving in snow is nothing new to me.  In Chicago, they often get 6 - 12 inches or more when it snows.  Because they get so much snow, the state is prepared to handle the conditions of the roads. There are plow trucks out right away, plowing and salting roads.
Living in the south, however, is a different story. Tennessee doesn't have plows and don't salt the roads.  Even a little bit of snow can be a problem.
Case in point, I left my office today at 1:15.  I only live … (8 comments)
