The weather outside has been unpredictable to say the least. Think about it. Toward the end of January we had a tornado in Robertson County on Sunday and 60 degree temperatures in Middle Tennessee. By the following Friday we had 6 inches of snow and temperatures in the low teens. Saying the weather has been out of the ordinary and difficult would be putting it mildly. Not that I don’t like snow. I truly like snow; I just don’t like some of the issues and outcomes often caused when we get too much of it. The wrecks, damage to roads and other associated costs really add up.
