Unprecedented Ice Storm Hits West and Middle Tennessee

Published: Feb. 18, 2021

An ice storm many haven’t seen in several years hit folks in west and middle Tennessee hard this week as temperatures dropped and remained in the single digits and freezing rain covered the ground. Many in middle Tennessee have been without power for days and others without water as well. Obviously for farmers, this weather is a challenge, but there’s no doubt the wellbeing of their livestock is top priority so they are ensuring all animals are well fed, watered and cared for. Our thanks go out to them for #StillFarming in these brutal conditions to provide food, fiber and fuel for all of us, but also to the utility workers, first responders and essential employees working around the clock to make sure power is back up and people are taken care of.
