Good morning, Nashville. Fun day we had yesterday with the weather, wasn’t it? Heavy rain, high winds, dropping temperatures and a brief tornado warning across Davidson, Williamson and surrounding counties had many people on Twitter saying “WTF, tornadoes in January?” Yes, it’s true – The National Weather Service has confirmed that an EF-0 tornado did indeed touch down in Rutherford County yesterday. In January.
- Cluck cluck. The “Backyard Chickens” measure is a go, passed by Metro Council last night with a 21-15 vote. No roosters will be permitted, and residents will be limited to 2-6 chickens, depending on the size of the property.
- SOPA-what-uh? If you haven’t stumbled across something about SOPA or PIPA on the interwebs today, well, we’re honored that Nashvillest.com is the only place on the interwebs that you visit. No, Wikipedia is not against cleanliness – technology companies are using today to speak out against the Stop Online Piracy Act and its Senate counterpart, the PROTECT IP Act. Locally in Nashville, the issue is a big one. Copyright owners support the acts in order to protect their intellectual property, but local tech companies are just as passionate about protecting the internet from censorship.
- Bits & pieces. The plan of attack against synthetic drugs, including “bath salts,” has been halted for a week … Franklin is toying with allowing horse-drawn carriage rides … Granite City Food & Brewery will open in Cool Springs this summer … 128 live dogs, 1 dead dog and 1 cat were found in a U-Haul pulled over in West Tennessee … Merle Haggard is hospitalized in Georgia … The Preds lost to the Rangers 3-0 last night … Whoops! Tipton County was left out of the new Tennessee Senate redistricting measure.
