IT'S BACK! Rain, Slush, Ice, Snow!? Here's information you need to know!
Here we go again!  I guess we can't complain since the fall and early winter was above average warm. However, we have two weather events facing us this week.  One is overnight tonight and another on Thursday/Friday of this week.  So it's time to do the right stuff now so you won't have that unfortunate insurance claim and deductible money spent because of possible bad weather. 
 
Here's the info: (from the National Weather Service):
  • WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 3 AM TO 6 PM CST WEDNESDAY...
  • MAIN IMPACT AREA... 1 TO 3 INCHES OF SNOW AS WELL AS UP TO ONE TENTH OF AN INCH OF ICE FOR AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF I-40 AND THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU. PREPARE FOR MAJOR TRAVEL IMPACTS.
  • OTHER IMPACT AREAS... UP TO INCH OF SNOW AND A TENTH OF AN INCH OF ICE FOR THE REST OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE. MODERATE TRAVEL IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW... SLEET... OR FREEZING RAIN WILL CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS AND LIMITED VISIBILITIES... AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.

More Information
WINTRY MIX OF SNOW AND ICE EXPECTED LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY....WITH AN ARCTIC AIRMASS ALREADY IN PLACE A STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION LATE TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY... LIKELY BRINGING A MIX OF SNOW... SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN TO THE MID-STATE. MIDDLE TENNESSEE COULD SEE UP TO AN INCH OF SNOW AND A TENTH OF AN INCH OF ICE. MAJOR TRAVEL IMPACTS ARE POSSIBLE SO AN UPGRADE TO A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR PORTIONS OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE MAY BECOME NECESSARY.

Hit-and-Run Deaths hit RECORD High!

WASHINGTON, D.C. - More than one hit-and-run crash occurs every minute on U.S. roads, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. These resulted in 2,049 deaths in 2016 – the highest number on record and a 60 percent increase since 2009. With the number of hit-and-run crashes on the rise, AAA is calling for drivers to be alert on the road in order to avoid a deadly crash and always remain on the scene if a crash occurs.

Why Does ANYONE Do This?

We have been candid and completely forthright with our thoughts about TEXTING and DRIVING or DISTRACTED DRIVING!  One action IS NOT worth the results of what can happen when you are behind a wheel of a car or riding with someone driving who gets distracted. AT&T has come forward with their “IT CAN WAIT!” campaign and it’s eye-opening to say the least.  I’ll say no more and let this following video speak for us and so many others in saying: “IS IT WORTH IT!?” .embed-container { position:...

Homeowners Insurance!  Do You Have Enough Coverage?
