- Memphis Weather Forecast:
- Freezing rain, ice, snow. Accumulations of 3 to 7 inches in the Mid-south!
Time to panic, Memphis. It's Snowmaggedon 2015!
Yes, I know. Those snow amounts are ridiculously low compared to the amount of snow that my friends in the Midwest and the Northeast have seen this year, but it's enough to bring Memphis to a screeching halt and snow us in for a few days.
The forecast is the top news story tonight and has been the only topic of conversation for days before expected event. Everyone and their neighbor is rushing to the hardware store for batteries, candles, flashlights, and propane for heaters. Cars circle the grocery store parking lot; drivers rushing to dart into any slot the instant it is vacated. Milk and bread can't be found in the city.
My daughter and I head out to battle the chaos of Memphis the night before the predicted storm, but we bypass the hardware store. The grocery isn't our primary target either, though the cupboards and refrigerator are by no means full. Where is our first stop when the potential of being "snowed-in" looms? Our local bookstore, of course!
