NES WARNS CUSTOMERS ABOUT PHONE SCAM
Let's start with the latest scam that's going around, even though YOU may not fall for it, please remember the older people in your life who might, and pass this along if you can. Nashville Electric Service says thieves are calling customers, telling them their NES payment hasn't been received, and threatening to cut off the customer's electricity if they don't use a credit card and make a payment over the phone. You guessed it: some people are falling for it. NES says it will NEVER ask for payment information over the phone.

FROST ADVISORY
Some people woke up to some patchy frost this morning, about a week ahead of schedule. On average, Nashville's first freeze of the fall usually happens one week from today.  And, we're not done. There are two more cold fronts coming through this week, that'll keep temperatures down. 

FALL TEMPS ARRIVE EARLY
As the completely grammatically-incorrect saying goes, "Fall has FELL!" 
And just in time for the kids to bundle up and go back to school.
Fall break is over for Metro Schools, so kids are back in class today.
