Editor’s Note: Y’all crashed this site a few times yesterday with 50,399 page views. I’m working through various possible low/no-cost solutions to bring stability and quality during these high volume events. So, for now, we’re going to go light on the graphics and bells and whistles to help prevent another crash.
Some have asked about this, and now is as good a time as any to say that this site, and @NashSevereWx, generate no revenue by design. And, no, I’m not a socialist, communist, cellist, or any other -ist (unsure about Will). There are two reasons:
(1) A revenue-generating model would jeopardize our very-good relationship with the NWS. @NashSevereWx only works as long as we are a volunteer community service. There are many reasons for this, and none of them have to do with our friends at the NWS.
(2) Were we to ask advertisers for money, the advertisers become the customers, not you. I don’t want what comes with that — competing with other sites, getting an email or call from someone paying us $7 per 1,000 hits telling me they didn’t like my overuse of “shenanigans” or my hilarious (only to me) GIF, etc. But, mostly, I don’t have the time or desire to deal with the “business” side of it.
So, bear with us as we seek a website solution. Thanks.
Tonight – Rain; Small Chance of Small Hail – Tonight Mid-60s
The strong/severe thunderstorms forecast this afternoon missed us, passing south and east of Davidson and Williamson Counties. However, we’ll see more off and on rain, and the NWS is not ruling out some small hail this evening.
The rest of the week, and weekend, looks quiet.
