Bright & Early: Dust It Off Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re running short on time this morning, so here’s your abbreviated Bright & Early:

  • Our weather alerts are flashing this morning about a possible dusting of snow today. Exciting, right? There’s also a possibly larger system on the way for Sunday night and Monday. [Nashville WX]
  • Experts say that all the recent hike in gas prices is just the beginning. [WSMV]
  • Two pitbull puppies fell into a 20-foot sinkhole in Putnam County yesterday and were thankfully rescued by local emergency crews, who said it was worth the risk because the puppies were very cute and grateful. The rescuers also noted that it was good practice for when more sinkholes open up and swallow humans. [WTVF]
  • A woman from Middle Tennessee is shipping guitars to troops in Afghanistan in hopes that a little music can go a long way in making deployments more bearable. [WTVF]
  • Nashville’s magnet school lottery happens tomorrow, and about 13,000 families will be waiting to hear. [WSMV]
  • A Southwest Airlines passenger was arrested at BNA after a “small arsenal” was discovered in his checked bag. [City Paper]
  • DUI arrests were way down on NYE, but not because fewer people were driving drunk. The funding that usually covers extra Metro police officers during that time was cut, meaning they didn’t have the resources to patrol as much as they normally do. [City Paper]
  • The Preds extended their winning streak to four against the Kings last night! [WTVF]
