PHOTOS: Extension agent shares rare glimpse of his Middle Tennessee farm covered in snow

In Middle Tennessee, where many have more than half a foot of snow on the ground right now, farmers are relishing the rare beauty of their snow-covered farms!

We know a lot of farm country, including our Nashville studios, has been hit hard with winter weather lately.

Extension agent Amos Wilson shared photos on Facebook with us of his family’s farm covered in the snow in Vanleer, Tennessee, located just outside of Dickson. The pictures show the John Deere putting out some hay in a blanket of snow, along with some beautiful shots of trees, a pond, another tractor, and of course a farm dog ready to help!

According to the Nashville Weather Service, the Middle Tennessee area received more than its average yearly snowfall in just a day, and the snowstorm also broke Nashville’s daily snowfall record for Jan. 15 (2.2 inches in 1951) by more than four inches. While Nashville got around seven inches of snow, the Vanleer/Dickson area received more than 8 inches! And, according to RFD-TV’s trusted team of meteorologists, more is on the way later this week!
