The message from the snow czar couldn’t have been clearer this afternoon. “Nashville area roads are already a mess and the storm hasn’t even hit yet. Ice everywhere. Cars are skidding all over the place. Don’t go out if you don’t have to,” OutKick’s founder and self-anointed snow czar of Nashville, Clay Travis, tweeted as Nashvillians prepared for what figures to be a historic storm.
The National Weather Service, in consultation with the local snow czar, announced Sunday night that Nashville can expect 3-4 inches of snow and possibly a quarter-inch of ice. Freezing drizzle has already made roads a mess, and the window to secure bread and milk appears to be over as can be seen by Nest videos now circulating amongst suburbanites.
What’s clear as of Sunday evening is that the snow czar will have his work cut out for him Monday morning as Old Man Winter delivers a wallop to middle Tennessee. Winter storm warnings remain in effect until 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Standby for further instructions from the snow czar as conditions change. Hunker down.
