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...
