We're Having A Snow Day

That's right, it's snowing. We are in the middle of Kentuky, in Leitchfield at the Walmart. I had a look at the weather before heading out from Clarksville, TN yesterday and Leitchfield had no weather advisories posted. Clarksville would be experiencing high winds from thunderstorms coming up from the Gulf of Mexico, and Louisville and Elizabethtown Kentuky both had advisories for the winter storm to the north. But Leitchfield was advisory free.

It was raining yesterday for part of our drive, and we made it to town incident free, then got ready for some overnight snow. We were expecting 1-3" of snow and woke up to a light covering on the ground and on top of vehicles. Nothing we can't handle. Of course the furnace went on yesterday evening, and a thick layering of blankets were on the bed.

It started snowing again this morning, melting as it hit the ground, and any snow that had fallen over the night has since disappeared. Temperatures for the day are expected to go up to a whopping 38 degrees, so we have staying put and having a snow day.

Our day is filled with pumpkin pie and hot chocolate, reading a good book and staying under the covers. The rugs are back on the floor, and the furnace has been running non-stop since we turned it on again this morning. It's been a long time coming, this is our first snowfall of the winter season.

Tomorrow we will be headed north again, destination Elizabethtown or Louisville, weather depending of course. And if temperatures rise high enough we may do a little more touristy stuff. We just have to make sure to cross the winter snowfall path before the next storm comes our way. We are hoping to enter Canada via Windsor by April 1.

Wish us luck.


  1. What are you doing in Kentucky on your way to the Canadian plains?

  2. We are headed for Canada, but we never said we were going home. Our current destination is around London, Ontario, wine country. The theory is that it should get warmer sooner than the prairies. That's the theory anyway.
