Bright & Early: Groggy Monday Edition

Good morning, Nashville, and happy Monday. It’s going to be a short one this morning:

  • Don’t count on too much snow tonight and tomorrow. At the moment, we’re pretty much looking at a half-inch or less. [Nashville WX]
  • And again, TDOT has been putting down brine ahead of the expected snow. Except they’re running out of it so they’ve started making their own with what little salt they have left. New salt shipments won’t go out until February. [WSMV]
  • Due to all the snow and freezing temperatures, we’ve heard lots of folks receiving sky-high electricity bills for the month of December. NES says that most people’s bills were about 25% higher than average. [WKRN]
  • After the controversial departure of Belmont women’s soccer coach Lisa Howe back in December, the school still hasn’t found a replacement. [City Paper]
  • Meanwhile, the City Paper continues trying to figure out what went on inside the closed-door strategy session at LifeWay last week. Conservative business leaders met on Wednesday to talk about ways to defeat a non-discrimination ordinance currently making its way through the Metro Council. [City Paper]
  • Chris Johnson won’t be joining the Titans during the offseason until training camp starts up in the spring. He says he’s got his own routine back in Florida and he plans to stick with it because it apparently works. [City Paper]
  • Congratulations, Nashville, you are the 7th most frugal city in the country. [WSMV]
