I can’t remember the last time I’ve cleaned snow off my car.But, today, I had that occasion after heavy snow fell in T’uscaloosa this morning.
About an inch of snow accumulated on my car and had to be brushed away from a random towel I had inside.
Visibility was poor driving around Tuscaloosa between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. today.
But, before the snow stopped, there was time to snap a couple of rare winter wonderland pictures here in T’town.
I watched as a couple of my neighbors built a little snowman up the hill from my house.
The snowflakes were big and the wind hit you in the face this morning.
Hey, it’s nice to know that even Tuscaloosa has four seasons some years.
With above freezing temperatures now, a lot of the snow is melting already as the white blanket that covered grassy areas begins to fade.
While both Tuscaloosa County and Tuscaloosa City schools dismissed early today along with the University of Alabama, which is shutting down at 3:15 p.m., one has to wonder why. Seems to me the hazardous conditions were several hours ago.
Assuming temperatures do fall again later in the evening, re-freezing and ice formation is a possibility.But, the sun is peeking through the clouds and likely to dry up much of what was slush on the roadways.
