  • Monsoon? Ice storm? Which will it be!? Unfortunately, probably just rain for us in Nashville. You better believe we’ll be doing our best snow dance at the Nashvillest HQ tonight, though. [WTVF]
  • Be careful out there on the roads since apparently 1 in every 5 Tennessean drivers is cruising around without car insurance. [WKRN]
  • Repair crews are working around the clock to spruce up LP Field, which sounds like it’s kind of falling apart. Here’s hoping for a playoff game without any major power outages! The Titans will be playing the Baltimore Ravens this Saturday. [WSMV]
  • News Channel 5 tries to explain what exactly the English Only charter initiative means for Nashville if it passes. [WTVF]
