March Madness is taking on a new meaning in Nashville for the semifinals of the SEC Tournament on Saturday.
Just two days after it was in the high 70’s and sunny, the city is covered in snow following an overnight storm that rolled through the area.
When the sun came up on Saturday, stunned reporters flocked to social media to share their view of the wild conditions.

I guess it’s a good thing Florida was eliminated on Friday night, right? Surely Gators fans wouldn’t want to be trekking through this weather in their shorts and sandals.
For the rest of the teams and their fans, this is just something you have to deal with when you’re fighting for a berth in the tournament final. At least basketball is played indoors, right?
Alabama takes on No. 1 seed Kentucky in the first semifinal matchup on Saturday afternoon. Tip-off is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Following Alabama-Kentucky, Arkansas and the surprising Vanderbilt Commodores face off for the remaining spot.
