6 a.m. Another Weekend Snow Encounter
Not quite a surprise, but certainly exciting-- a Sunday morning snow event for those in Tuscaloosa.
Within the last half-hour, I decided to venture out the front and back doors of the house to get a few pre-dawn photos of the white stuff.
Maybe it's a good thing that the news media in Alabama under-played this in the days leading up to the winter weather event. That's always when something really happens.
While we've had a dusting that lasted for just a few hours last January (2008), these are the only memorable snow events for me in this town. Last January's snow was on a Saturday.
Slick roads are being reported here in Tuscaloosa and around the area. But, Sunday morning is certainly about the best time for this to happen. And, by the time, people actually have to be going to somewhere, this brief snow event will have passed us by.
The hazardous conditions on my deck are probably an indication of the conditions on some of the overpasses and bridges in the area.
