It’s also the darkest day in 372 years, because there is a full moon eclipse happening at 2:41 am during the Winter Solstice for the first time since 1638.

  • Amazon.com finalized their deal to move two distribution facilities to the Chattanooga area which will create 1,400 new jobs over the next few years. [WTVF]
