Good morning, Nashville. It’s still snowing outside, somehow! Schools are out again today, the kiddos have nearly forgotten what the inside of a classroom looks like, and we feel quite sure they’ll be cursing these snow days well into June when they’re still not out for the summer. The good news is, these snow showers should wrap up soon this morning and give way to sun this afternoon, and then it might actually get out of the 20s tomorrow. Here’s hoping.

The Preds are going into tonight’s game with a six-game winning streak … The City of Franklin took the plunge and purchased another $45,000 worth of salt for the roads … Tennessee’s bankruptcy filings were down 6% last year … A woman in Williamson County had to wait 35 minutes for the police to arrive while a man tried to break into her home. When he finally got in, she beat him back out the door with a vacuum cleaner.
