Good morning, Nashville. Is it possible to veto a snow storm? Because we’ll sign whatever we need to sign to make that happen. This morning’s forecast actually isn’t looking that bad with only 1-2 inches of snow predicted, though that’s enough frozen stuff to cause Metro and other neighboring school systems to shut things down early today. Look for the snow to roll into town around noon and taper off in the early morning hours. It’s cold enough that the evening commute may be a little slick, so be careful out there! As usual. But here’s some good news: Warmer weather and sunshine are definitely on the way.
- Big incentives. Mayor Dean wants to offer up a $2.4 million grant to lure the Asurion Corporation, a cell phone repair company, to Davidson County. The move would bring 600 new jobs to Nashville.
- Way to go, Murfreesboro. For some reason, Amazon.com ranked Murfreesboro as the 8th most romantic city in the country. The listing is actually based on romantic novel and movie sales since the first of the year and Knoxville was second only to Alexandria, Virginia. Guess we know what you East Tennesseans are reading tonight…
- Bits & pieces. The head of the Metro Parks Police was decommissioned after a domestic incident with his wife … Williamson County got a new shipment of salt just in time, it seems … Some folks are up in arms about former Bredesen staffers filling up unadvertised positions with the city government … The Music City Center construction is right on schedule … Those foreclosed Fifth and Main condos in East Nashville will be auctioned off at the end of the month.
