NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Friday morning, Middle Tennessee woke up to a sight they haven't seen yet this year, a blanket of snow. But by noon, most of it had melted away.

Out in East Nashville, a mother and her two children decided to explore outside, after a lot of the snow had already melted away. Big sister and little brother broke out into a snow fight anyway.

Just down the street, Jim and Michelle Hungate figured such little snow meant the same went for clothes. "I can't get rid of my Florida roots, I can’t help it," says Michelle Hungate.

"Sometimes you’ve got to get out and get in it, and get used to it," said her husband, Jim Hungate.

But Jim started to reconsider the longer he stood outside. "This is actually kind of cold right now," he admitted.

The snow was just pretty enough for Jim and Michelle to take it all in but not enough to disrupt their plans to get a workout in. "As long as it doesn’t cause traffic problems that’s the best," said Jim.

By noon, the sun came out melting away most of the snow, almost as quickly as it fell. A lonely snowman in Shelby Park was one of the few surviving creations.
