Good morning, Nashville. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention all the storms headed our way, though we suspect you’ve already looked out the window this morning and seen for yourselves. As of 9:30am, all of Middle Tennessee was placed under a tornado watch until 5pm for a particularly nasty line of storms that’s expected to sweep through the region around noon and bring some possible tornadoes, large hail and wind gusts in excess of 70 mph. So! Go ahead and locate a basement or windowless room with wi-fi and plan on spending a good bit of your day down there. Here are some quick safety tips for you, too.
- And here we thought Cool Springs was safe. A woman and her daughter were driving around Cool Springs just minding their own business, when out of nowhere… BLAMMO! A hedge apple came crashing through their windshield. Thankfully no one was injured and Franklin Police suspect that someone fired it out of a potato gun.
- Building on floodplains? The Metro Council put the kibosh on a bill that would’ve banned any sort of development on the city’s floodplains. Instead, they’ll be working on an ordinance that will require developers to build things in a way that doesn’t put the surrounding area at any greater risk of flooding.
- Bits & pieces. The two gubernatorial front runners have each been assigned security details by the state in the days leading up to the election … If you see Franklin firefighters running around in pink uniforms, just remember that it’s for a good cause … Tell all of your out-of-town friends it’s a good time to visit, as Nashville’s hotel rates dropped more than any other city during Q3. Just maybe don’t mention the bedbugs … Williamson County Schools are still trying to rezone.
