Good morning, Nashville. So how about all those storms last night? Some pretty severe weather rolled through middle Tennessee last night with nearly two inches of rain, damaging winds, a handful of tornadoes and crazy enough lightning to start a house fire. We’ll likely see another round of storms tomorrow followed by cooler weather. And it’s about time, seeing as it’s almost November and everything.
- All hail the Sewer Hog. There is a curious creature downtown, and it’s called the Sewer Hog. The Sewer Hog is that giant red thing that’s been sitting in the middle of Broadway for the last few months apparently cleaning out the city’s sewer systems since the flood carried so much mud and debris into them. Without it, we could have raw sewage flowing into the streets.
- Insert Streetcar Named Desire reference here. The city’s latest public transit dream: A streetcar that runs from Harding and White Bridge down West End to Lower Broadway. Metro is currently studying how feasible and practical this would be and may eventually compete for federal grant money to fund the project.
- Bits & pieces. The Titans had us on the edge of our seats yesterday, but they managed to pull out a 37-19 win over the Eagles … The Tennessean would like to know why all of our Halloween costumes are so dirty … A Nashville filmmaker’s documentary about a quadriplegic MMA fighter will premiere on ESPN next month.
