Telling Tales: The Blizzard of 2010

I’m one of those people.

I watch the weather - religiously. And I think there is something seriously wrong with those of you who don’t.

Be it a thunderstorm, flood or blizzard - I’m never caught off-guard. In fact, Lisa Patton is one of my very best friends. (One of these days I hope to meet her.) And you are a dead man if you try to change the channel before I get to watch her.



Learning about the real world is not always good


Our youngest daughter graduated from college last year and has entered the real world.

Or perhaps I should say she thinks she has entered the real world.

She has a job. She gets up early in the morning and commutes daily to Nashville to that job. She is learning what a budget is but is still having problems segregating “I’ve got to have this” from “I really want this.”


Letters to the Editor

Christmas for All: Thanks for the assistance

To the Editor:

The Christmas of 2009 will probably be remembered by a lot of people in Wilson County, and today's children will surely tell their grandchildren about the hardships with the economy.

However, in Wilson County there are a lot of children who will not have to tell their grandchildren about Santa not coming to their house in 2009. In the Lebanon area more than 3,000 children and senior citizens enjoyed Christmas thanks to the generosity and volunteer work from our community.

Citys snow fleet feels storms pain

From Post staff reports

Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead responded yesterday to a number of inquiries he said his office has had about what the City of Lebanon did to prepare for last weekend’s winter blast and what “the City was doing to clear the streets.”

He prefaced his remarks with some humor saying “I wish we could have all spent the recent snow storm bundled up in our homes, drinking hot chocolate and watching our children and grandchildren enjoy their snow sleds. Ahhhh, to be young again. But with age comes responsibility and unfortunately we have to get out of our driveways and face the real world.”

The event is a fund raiser for the Wilson County Library system, and all three libraries benefit from the proceeds.

More snow?

The Wilson Post

There is a possibility of more snow this weekend, but so far it doesn’t look like there will be as much as this past weekend.

Forecasts on Tuesday called for 1-3 inches depending on how the storm system tracks. Some computer models from the National Weather Service showed a low pressure system moving more easterly than northeasterly from the Louisiana area and the way it how it tracks will determine how much snow the Middle Tennessee area receives.
