No more snow. Please.

Nashville is expected to get between one and three inches of snow sometime tomorrow afternoon or evening. The roads will be slip-slidin’ slick, we’re told.

Judging by the reactions to this forecast by all my Nashville friends on Twitter and Facebook, I’d say that the collective cry of anguish might be enough to break some glass. Some thick glass.

Nashville is officially Over This. We are all Over Winter. Completely. Unequivocally. No one’s even bothering to hit the grocery store anymore to prepare for the latest snowpocalypse. No one’s stocking up on milk and bread for milk sandwiches. We just moan. Moan and fervently pray that the schools will stay open. And reflexively hit the refresh button on the school closings pages on the local news websites, over and over and over. I’ve known a few people to say very mean things about the Snowbird when he has some bad news. No one here, of course.

Interested in finding out how the local public school system is structuring the snow day make-up days? The first make-up day appears to be this Friday, Feb. 11. Other make-up days will follow, of course, given that the district only built four inclement weather days into the 2010-2011 calendar, and they’re racked up some completely unexpected number of snow days beyond that (at least five more, but I’ve stopped counting). Private schools, of course, have a little more leeway to make up for snow day closures.

Anyone got a good anti-snow prayer they’re willing to share?
