Good morning, Nashville. The weatherpeople continue to keep an eye on the big ice storm that will be rolling through the area later today, though (predictably!) it looks like we’ll be getting more un-frozen rain than anything here in Nashville while the worst of it will be passing to our north. The current forecast shows a wintry mix starting to fall around 4pm and freezing rain continuing through about 10pm before changing over to rain. Either way, it could make for a pretty slick evening commute and we all know that the forecast could change drastically within the next ten minutes.
- All we want for Christmas. Our beloved Schermerhorn Symphony Center is still on track to open for New Years Eve. The Schermerhorn has been out of commission since the May flood, which did about $40 million worth of damage to the four-year old building.
- Integration. A recent survey shows that Nashville has become far more integrated in the last ten years, with less folks staying in neighborhoods that are predominantly populated with their own race. Nashville’s Hispanic population has also nearly doubled since 2000.
- Bits & pieces. An accident in East Nashville sent a car careening through a 78-year old man’s sunroom while he was napping in the other room … Metro is working to expand its services for student who are trying to learn English … Mayor Dean is still standing behind his plan to eventually develop the Fairgrounds.
