Snow wrong

Posted: January 25, 2011 in media, Weather

The Knoxville News-Sentinel is running a headline that 2 to 5 inches of snow is expected for the Knoxville area Wednesday.

Problem is, it’s not entirely correct.

The winter weather advisory issued for Knoxville clearly states that there is the possibility of “one to four inches of snow for the advisory area”. It’s those areas under a winter storm warning (which the article incorrectly says is a storm watch) across the midstate and up in Kentucky that have the better shot at the 2 to 5 inch snowfall.

Nit-picking over an inch of snow either way? Maybe. But whoever posted the article on the paper’s website didn’t read the advisory correctly and the headline is actually misleading. Even commenters on the website felt the need to point out the obvious mistake.

Politics as usual

I am hearing that a TBI investigation is wrapping up that involves a former East Tennessee county commissioner. He is about to be charged with bid tampering, fraud and theft to the tune of over a half million dollars.

And snow it goes

I love it when it snows and brings everything to a halt allowing peace and serenity to blanket us. Winter has always been my favorite season. And I don’t understand those in this area who complain about the cold and snow. You do realize this is supposed to happen during the winter here, don’t you?

Brace yourselves. Perhaps the biggest storm of the season is just around the corner.

The blogging game

Posted: January 4, 2011 in Me Me Me

Are my words any less important if I don’t put my name on them?

I’m blogging anonymously because I’ve felt the urge again as of late. However, for reasons that are more professional than personal, I’m leaving the name off the page this time. It’s the only way I can blog and say what I really want to say. There are some super cool people in the Tennessee blogosphere from whom I can learn a lot.

I want to be heard again even if you don’t know who I am.

I want back in the game.

USS Enterprise Capt. Owen Honors will be relieved of his command.

I say GOOD. Too bad there’s not a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the US military for assholes.
