SCHOOL CLOSINGS
Whites Creek High School is closed today because of a lack of heat in the building. Students are expected to return to class on Friday. All other Metro schools are open. And one more county is open but has a condition: in Wilson County the routes are open to bus drivers' discretion... so if you're on an icy road, you may have to take your own kids to school.

ROADS MOSTLY CLEAR
We were very fortunate today, and metro did a great job salting the roads ahead of time. The interstates were mostly clear when most of us woke up, though there MAY be some slick spots on SECONDARY roads.
       The trouble seems to be getting to the interstates. Someone posted on Facebook that he stepped out onto his back deck to let the dogs out and his SHOES froze to the ice and snow on his deck. lol.

WEATHER A BIG FACTOR THIS NEXT FEW DAYS: SNOW, SINGLE DIGITS
While it IS extremely cold here, it's even colder for some of our friends and family in the northeast. 22 states are getting hammered by a winter storm that's dropping anywhere from 8 inches to two feet of snow on many cities...  and the even more dangerous part of the storm, temperatures are close to or below zero. People in the track of the winter storm are being told to stay home if they can.

WEATHER A BIG FACTOR THIS NEXT FEW DAYS: SNOW, SINGLE DIGITS
Okay, today's the day you need to really pay attention to what the weather will be later this afternoon, so you can dress accordingly before you go out.
Rain is already turning to snow showers in some parts of the state, with accumulation already in Clarksville. Temperatures will be dropping to the teens by overnight, and here's the part that'll get you: North winds 15 to 30 miles an hour. So it'll feel even colder as that front hits.

THREE CENT POSTAL RATE INCREASE
Mailing a letter is about to get a little more expensive.  Look for a temporary 3cent increase for a first class stamp, making it 49cents a letter. Forever stamps can be purchased at the lower rate until the change and they are accepted forever – no matter how many rate hikes take place.  Bulk mail, periodicals, and package rates rise 6%.  The hike is supposed to last only two years, effective Jan 26 to help the Post Office recover from the severe mail decrease brought on by 2008 economic downturn.
