The Sunny South has Frozen Over

Being raised in snow country I know this looks like nothing to most but living on this mountain freezing temps can cause major problems. Most jobs are closed because of black ice. The brow roads are all closed going down the mountains. There is only one road that I know of that is open to go down the mountain and then you have to go 50 or 75 miles out of your way to get where your going. I love the mountains but it doesn't mix with snow and ice. The temps will not be above freezing for a least 4 or 5 days so we all might as well settle in. At the moment there is water and electricity but I'm afraid this weekend could change that as the temps are going to drop even lower. Thank goodness this only happens around here every decade or so. If you don't hear from me in a while,please send some salt trucks.
