Winter Storm Hunter Is Already Bearing Down on the U.S.
It’s expected to hit an area from Washington State to Mississippi and the Northeast. Just a week after Winter Storm Grayson pounded the East Coast with heavy snow and record chills, an even bigger storm is threatening most of the U.S. with blizzards and ice. Winter Storm Hunter began hitting much of the U.S. Wednesday, with its first phase bringing snow, freezing rain or sleet to the Plains and the Midwest.
The second phase is expected to sweep east with ice and freezing rain Thursday through Saturday night across the Tennessee Valley, Ohio Valley, The Great Lakes and up into the interior Northeast. On Thursday, the storm has brought blizzard conditions into Bismarck, the Grand Forks, and Salina, spreading snow into the Texas panhandle and into Michigan by Thursday evening. The latest forecast shows that the storm will continue marching into the eastern Great Lakes and into the Ohio Valley through Friday, bringing rainy conditions to New York, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, Knoxville, and Burlington and snow in Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Traverse City by Friday night. As the storm continues to move into the weekend, cities including Detroit and Indianapolis can expect snowy and wet conditions arriving on Friday, and will want to keep their eyes out for possible closures according to the Weather Channel’s latest forecast. Slippery roads and spotty power outages are still expected in cities that include Boston, Portland, New York, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Charleston, Cleveland, Paducah, Memphis, Louisville, and Nashville throughout Saturday.
The National Weather Service has put out winter storm watches, warnings, and advisories for areas from Mississippi to the central Plains and the Rockies. The storm will also bring snow into the Washington Cascades and northern Rockies, eastern Montana, northwest Wisconsin, and Michigan’s western Upper Peninsula, causing potentially harzardous roads, bridges, and overpasses. By Friday, Pennsylvania, upstate and central New York, and northern New England can expect freezing rain, with snow lingering into Saturday. Heavy ice buildup and rapidly plunging temperatures – and risks of power cuts – are expected for an area stretching from Mississippi to Quebec, according to AccuWeather.

Nashville Travel Guide
For many years, if a non-Tennessean thought about Nashville at all, it was probably in the context of country music, health-care organizations, or the Swan Ball. All that still exists today-the Grand Ole Opry, the medical indus-try, and the old money-but none of it explains why, seemingly out of nowhere, Nashville has become the glamour capital of the South. New restaurants are being built on seasonal ingredients, with styles ranging from the chef-driven tasting menus at the Catbird Seat to the reworked American classics at Pinewood Social to the new-wave Indian cooking at Chauhan Ale & Masala House. As novelist and songwriter Alice Randall, coauthor of the cookbook Soul Food Love, points out, Nashville has always been a city of good food-it’s just that in the past, the best kitchens were at home. Though the restaurant scene definitely has a locavore bent, it has pulled back from the aesthetic of Mason jars and reclaimed wood.
Of course, Nashville was, is, and always will be Music City, and it has long welcomed tourists eager to bask in the nostalgia of the Opry, buy a pair of cowboy boots, and hoof it at a honky-tonk. The difference is that now, in-the-know locals buy their boots-handmade in Italy-at Peter Nappi, says transplant Connie Britton, a star of ABC’s lauded series Nashville. The wide-ranging impact of Nashville’s legacy is on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum-a must-see, according to Patchett. The Gulch, another emerging area, is home to the five-room 404 Hotel-its restaurant, the 404 Kitchen, was shortlisted for a James Beard Award-as well as the gallery Sherrick & Paul, where David Zwirner alum Susan Sherrick puts on national-caliber shows. For all the changes happening, traditional elements of Nashville endure.
Despite the city’s foodie turn, most everyone concurs that the finest down-home lunch spot is Arnold’s Country Kitchen. The restaurant has expanded its original Gulch address and recently opened a second location, just down the street from Patchett’s Parnassus Books.
