  1. Official Announcement: Broadway has now been renamed "Honky Tonk Highway".
  2. Weather nerd here. People discuss this quite a bit, so I figure I'll chime in. Since there is about a 400 ft difference in elevation between outlying areas on the rim like Joelton and Downtown Nashville, orographics, or the "bowl" effect Mr. Bond elluded to occasionally have a slight influence on precipitation that falls in Nashville proper, however radar bias is the main culprit for this phenomenon. Basically, the radar at the Nashville NWS in Old Hickory shoots a beam outward that detects precipitation/objects in a ~100 mile fixed radius around Nashville. Because this beam has an upward trajectory as it travels, the further away from Nashville, the higher off the ground the radar samples the atmosphere. This means the rain/sleet/snow it depicts over Nashville is detected just above ground level but what it depicts at Clarksville or Bowling Green is actually detected thousands of feet above ground level. Since precipitation often evaporates as it falls towards the ground, the 'split' you often see as weather approaches the city is merely more accurate data being presented due to closer proximity to the radar site. It's a current limition of doppler radar technology that can only be remedied by increasing the density of radar sites.
  3. This. The city "overhauled" traffic signals in 2016 and still I can't go more than 2 blocks without hitting a red traveling at the posted speed limit on OHB/Bell Rd.
  4. Utility aside. really looking forward to improvements in the overall visual aesthetics of 440. Currently lots of overgrown brush on the sound barriers, rusty light poles, graffiti, center median landscaping is almost nill. Really notice these things when you're only going 10 mph.
  5. I know people have criticized the recent Bonnaroo lineups for not being exclusive or unique anymore, especially after Live Nation took the reins. Obviously the more saturated festival-sphere, the tougher that task becomes. I think its identity crisis (if you want to call it that) is rooted in the desire to appeal to longtime "Bonnaroovians" with the realization that its target demographics are broadening with the younger generations in play. Hate to say it but attendance numbers are important. They're a large gauge of relevance in the industry and its why mainstream adoption is here to stay. Attendance and line-ups aside, the most important thing to note here is the experience hasn't changed. The positivity and embrace of random strangers from every background creates a vibe and its what separates Roo from every. single. festival. It is truly a 700 acre utopia and is equally a catalyst for its long term success. See y'all on the farm! 80,000 strong this year.
  6. Thought I'd look up some good transit alternatives on NoTaxForTracks' website today. To my dismay, they had already taken down their website.
  7. It really is a blessing, you know. Having so much scenic, undevelopable land surrounding the city. I can be downtown and in 15 minutes be at Radnor Lake in the middle of mother nature. It's an appeal Nashville has over other metros IMO.
  8. Random note.. Broadstone Gulch looks enormous going down 8th. Hadn't been through there during the day in a few months. Massive footprint.
  9. Heard many of tales about that winter from elders growing up. Back then, the water levels weren't regulated. If the river was low and you got sustained bitter cold, the Cumberland would indeed freeze over (this happened more than once). Army Corp of Engineers dammed it up in the 50s to regulate the flow making a complete freeze just about impossible.
  10. Well they left out BNA which is, judging by # of baseball hats I've seen, the hippest place in town.
  11. At the rate it's going, might as well plop down a Ripleys next door. Hell, a Surf Style might work across from Lake Palmer.
  12. A little surprised LR doesn't extend further down Charlotte.
  13. Anyone else just see that lovely pan of the skyline from the south on MNF?
