It's as cold as...Well, it's as cold as ice
Since the first of the year, it has been extremely cold here in Middle Tennessee, much like it has been in most of the country. When I drive to work each day, I pass by exposed rock along Interstate 24 in northern Coffee County. Usually, small amounts of water seep out of the rock, but because of the prolonged cold, the water has turned to ice.
Since Jan. 1, the ice has gotten progressively longer and longer as the photo shows. Temperatures are forecasted to return to normal by the middle of next week. The ice may be gone soon. So, if you enjoy extreme cold, enjoy it while you can.
