The KCS homepage also mentions today's early dismissal, but neither the robocall nor the homepage mentions whether Dr. McIntyre will still deliver his State of the Schools address tonight at Powell High.

Please post if you should learn and/or I'll do the same.

Not on my end.

However, the story on the News-Sentinel homepage says the "winter weather advisory" runs 1 p.m. to 9 p.m., I think it was.

Says rain is to quickly turn to snow?

They're predicting 1 - 4 inches now, not the "up to one inch" we heard yesterday?

If it snows like it's been

If it snows like it's been raining, they're wise to call it early.

When it snows, it will probably come down fast and hard, in a sure panic inducing kind of way.

I got four cell calls from my son AND his third period classmates ("Hi, Miz Shepherd, This is Brittany. I just wanted to say "hey,"" followed by delirious giggles.), so I just went and picked him up.-mostly to relieve his teacher, who was clearly having some trouble keeping a lid on things.

There were a good fifty parents in the front office and my son said 1/4 of his class had already gone home.

Also, the mister called to report that oodles of his co-workers had ditched, too, whether or not they have kids?

Still just rain here...

North Knoxville and Knox

North Knoxville and Knox County looks like a mess with some accumulation. Does anybody know just how bad it is up there?

West Knoxville-nothing on the ground or trees...but there may be ice with the rain.

Over an inch here in East Knox County and it's covering the roads. It's thundering too. I think we've pissed off mother nature...

Schools should have dismissed

Schools should have dismissed once the day was counted, 1pm.

I bet that pooch gets tired being screwed so much by Central Office.
