How many of you love Tennessee weather?
I was raised in Maury County, Tennessee, and I am quite used to dealing with the fluctuating weather. You never know what the temperature is going to be. If a cold or warm front comes through, you don’t know how long the weather will last. I was telling my mother the other day that the weather was so crazy it couldn’t decide weather to be hot or cold.
At home the weather is not that big of an issue because I have all of my clothes. Since I live so close to home I didn’t bring all of my clothes up here. It was hard there for awhile to figure out my clothes situation. I went home to get some warmer clothes and I put all of my summer clothes up.
Last week the weather was warmer and I had my warm clothes at Lipscomb and my other clothes were back home. I was too hot in my classes, but then when I came to the dorm it was freezing. We haven’t had heat in Fanning until this week and recently we haven’t had hot water either. The National Weather Service is great about putting out accurate up-to- date information about the weather.
It’s been hard to figure out what clothes to wear because it’s been such ridiculous weather. I miss back home and the fires that we have in our hearth. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and spending time with friends and family. I know at home no matter the temperature I’ll always be prepared. I suppose next year I’ll bring all of my clothes to Nashville so I won’t have this problem again.
Bonfires are a huge thing down in Carter’s Creek. There is always a fire somewhere. My brother has barn parties, and he always as a fire going out a little ways from the barn on Saturday nights.
Being up in the city has made me miss the simple things such as spending time with friends around a fire. I already have plans this weekend to see my friends from back home and have a bonfire and ride four-wheelers through the farm. I can hardly wait for my time at home.
