The weeks seem to fly and the weekends go by even faster. Something about being a grownup? I am not sure. However, what I am sure of is that this time of year is awesome in Chattanooga and the surrounding area. There is nothing like watching your friend's Facebook pages and seeing snow photos and pictures of people wearing coats and going outside to sit in the 75 degree sunshine on your own deck. Here are your best bets for Facebook gloat opportunities to share with your frozen friends.
