Despite the cold, biting wind and falling snows, it looks as if many in Antioch really enjoyed the snow days over the weekend.
Lots of sledding, lots of kids playing, a few snow balls, and probably gallons of snow cream were made.
Weather reports indicated that somewhere between seven and nine inches of snow fell on Antioch Friday.
It was a bumpy weekend. While more than 200 wrecks were reported across Nashville, and Antioch saw its share of cars sliding off the roads, no serious wrecks were reported in Antioch on city streets.
While temperatures finally rose above freezing Sunday, beginning the thawing process, most areas schools planned to be closed on Monday.
Antioch’s Molly Martin laid out a pretty good plan for the day, saying she would be, “Sledding in the neighborhood, or at least in the front yard! Watching the snow fall and marveling in its beauty, giving thanks for my safety and warmth indoors … and then joining the rest of the world in watching Making a Murderer!”
She wasn’t the only one planning to spend a little time in front of the television. Mel Person planned to do some knitting while watching a couple of movies, after playing in the snow of course.
Elma Adkisson wasn’t convinced when she posted on Facebook that she’d make it outside. She said she would, “Watch the snowfall, snuggle by the fireplace with hot chocolate and TV.” She added that she, “Will make my way out the door later to help build a snowman … Maybe.”
Despite everything, Antioch and the area seemed to try hard to make the most of their snow days.
Monday’s forecast calls for a high of 51 degrees which should help clear things out.
