Good morning, Nashville. We hope you’re at home enjoying the day off like we are here at the Nashvillest HQ. While we’re sleeping in late and firing up the grill this afternoon, we’ll be bringing you a few posts throughout the day. But don’t worry–we’ll be back in full force tomorrow. In the mean time, our hearts go out to the folks feeling the wrath of Gustav and to the 1,500 evacuees who are riding out the storm in Nashville. Before we head back to bed, here’s a roundup of the latest hurricane news for everyone keeping track, and we’ll be checking out NashvilleWX for all our weather updates as things unfold:
