New Site: Go There!

Dear TiLaV-ers,

This is Ivy, posting from Kathy’s account. The new self-hosted site is now up. Please change your bookmarks and RSS feeds to the new site at http://www.thisislavergne.com. Not all the links are up yet, so keep that in mind when you go to view the new site. We’re still working on the small details.

Additionally, because this site’s export file was too big to import into the new site, the site’s archives only go back to January 2010. This site will stay up as long as WordPress will allow it, so if you need to look something up in the archives, come on back here. New content will be posted at the new site only.

Much love to (almost) all of ya,

Ivy

How did you weather the storm?

My NOAA weather radio was going nuts in the back of my house;  I have it programmed for Rutherford, Williamson, Davidson, and Wilson counties.  I ignored it because I was busy watching a movie or something… but outside the wind, tornadoes, or whatever were hard at work.  I lost a very big tree in my back yard… other casualties were my fence, the corner of my shed, and the squirrel who lived in that tree.  Luckily, the tree did not hit my house or our camper… others weren’t so lucky.  How are you all?

In other news, I have an electric blue ’95 Geo Tracker that needs a new owner.  Anybody interested?

Some City Meetings FYI

There’s so much excitement in City Hall right now!  If you want to get an inkling about why the city is abuzzzzzz …

Come to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen Workshop scheduled on Thursday (that’s February 24th) at 5:00 p.m. to hear some of the ideas being bandied around. Here’s a link to the formal agenda (and I hope the link works).

The actual Board meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00 p.m. That’s the one where the items discussed on Thursday are formally voted upon.

Please come to one or both!

In other news … LaVergne now has an official Facebook page.  And Twitter account!  I named it LaVergne37086 (like Beverly Hills 90210, only not).  JUST started so not a lot on them yet … we’ll get there.

So how is everyone?

Smith’s Market Reopens

I’m so excited to finally see the grand opening of the new Sav-A-lot, formerly known as Smith’s Market of LaVergne.  I feel like the store has been closed forever, missing the quality meat department and friendly, courteous staff.

I wonder if we will see some of the previous staff members, they always went above and beyond to assist you and  appreciated your business.

Bobby Smith, sons Greg and Dwayne and their wives Julie and Liane will all still be involved in the store, which received money from private investors to make the switch to Save-A-Lot

The Daily News Journal reports a tentative ribbon cutting date of February 26.

Another Round of Weather

This winter certainly is gonna wind up in my book as the most active winter in the 12 years I’ve lived here. It’s definitley been busy.  Are the schools prepared, is the state prepared, most importantly, are you prepared?

According to the National Weather Service in Nashville, we are in for at least two more rounds of snow this week! Here is a Hazardous Weather Statement from this morning.

…TWO SNOWFALLS ARE EXPECTED IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE THIS WEEK…
…THE MID WEEK SNOW STORM COULD BE A BIG ONE…

A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL SURGE INTO THE MID STATE ON MONDAY…
BRINGING A TURN TO SHARPLY COLDER WEATHER.

AS COLDER AIR POURS INTO NORTHWESTERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE MONDAY
AFTERNOON…SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AND CONTINUE INTO THE
EVENING. THE SNOW WILL THEN SPREAD EASTWARD ACROSS OTHER PARTS OF
OUR AREA MONDAY NIGHT…BEFORE TAPERING TO FLURRIES ALONG THE
CUMBERLAND PLATEAU TUESDAY. MOST OF THE MID STATE IS EXPECTED TO
RECEIVE BETWEEN ONE HALF AND ONE INCH OF SNOW BY SUNRISE
TUESDAY…WITH LOW TEMPERATURES TUESDAY MORNING FORECAST TO BE IN
THE MIDDLE 20S. SOME ROADS MAY BECOME SLICK AND HAZARDOUS.

A COLD CANADIAN AIR MASS WILL SETTLE IN ACROSS THE REGION TUESDAY
AND WEDNESDAY…AS A LOW PRESSURE AREA DEVELOPS OVER TEXAS…AND
HEADS INTO THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.
SNOW IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER THE MID STATE BY SUNSET
WEDNESDAY…AND INCREASE IN INTENSITY WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE WAY
THINGS LOOK NOW…THE MID STATE HAS THE POSSIBILITY OF RECEIVING
SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW BY SUNRISE THURSDAY. THE SNOW IS FORECAST
TO DIMINISH FROM THE WEST ON THURSDAY…BUT ADDITIONAL LIGHT AMOUNTS
ARE STILL POSSIBLE. HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY OCCUR
WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.

ANYONE PLANNING TRAVEL IN THE MID STATE THIS WEEK SHOULD STAY
TUNED TO A RELIABLE SOURCE OF WEATHER INFORMATION…AND LISTEN FOR
ANY FORECAST UPDATES…OR WINTER WEATHER STATEMENTS…THAT MIGHT
BE ISSUED.

How’s that for ole Jack Frost huh? He aint finished with us yet.  At least Rutherford County planned ahead and implemented 11 inclement weather days in there calendar.  So far They’ve missed 6 days this year and have 5 more remaining.

Better get out and enjoy todays weather. I hear the high today is gonna be about 50 degrees!

Good Afternoon, La Vergne!

I’ve had a long, hard morning of Mario Kart Wii and lunch with friends. I thought I’d relax with some news for y’all. Let’s take a look around the mid-state and see what’s happening, shall we?

The DNJ tells us the Garden Patch Thrift Store is celebrating it’s 1-year anniversary. I had no idea it existed, and I pretty much haunt all the thrift stores in the area. It appears to be in downtown Murfreesboro on Spring Street, according to their website. The DNJ says they’re having a half-off everything sale tomorrow, so I suppose I’ll mosey down there tomorrow if I don’t get too busy playing Mario Kart. What’s your favorite thrift store, La Vergne? Mine would be All Things Possible on Northfield Blvd. in Murfreesboro.

It’s a slow news day over at WKRN because they’re giving us a special investigative report about how snow costs taxpayers money. Shocking, really. Someone ought to do something about this “snow” thing. Maybe we can outlaw it. :::ducks the snowballs thrown by all the snow lovers:::

This, from the Murfreesboro Post: be careful who you let your kids spend the night with. Apparently a 12 year old girl was at a friend’s house staying the night, when her friend’s mother woke the girl and her friend up and told them they were going to North Carolina. What?! The girl’s mom called the girl the next day and found out her daughter was in North Carolina. I can hardly imagine the massive coronary her mom had when she heard this.

That’s really all the news that I found interesting. Slow news day, indeed. We can do better than this, TiLV-ers! Tell me your news, or make something interesting up. And don’t forget, I want to hear about your fave thrift stores as well.
