Knoxville is supposed to get above freezing tomorrow. I must say, I'm thrilled at the possibility of warmth enough to not keep water running. But I can't recall the last time I was excited that we were predicted to climb above freezing for the third time in an entire winter season much less a single month.
And yeah, I know we've had colder winters in my lifetime, and yeah, I was here for the coldest day on record for Knoxville back in 1985. It's been a while, and it's a much rarer occurrence than it seems like it was in my younger days. And I'm still looking forward to whatever is the mercury substitute crossing the 32 degree threshold.
