NASHVILLE, Tenn. - For the first time ever, Nashville residents had a city-sponsored oasis in the middle of a cold downtown. It's about 9 degrees downtown and right now just about everyone that lives or works there is inside somewhere. During the day, it's a different story. That's why the Office of Emergency Management teamed up with Metro Schools to put up mobile warming stations downtown and at the Nashville Farmer's Market. They're essentially heated Metro School buses, set up so people and others who live or work outside can warm up for a bit. They were open until 7pm, right around the time downtown workers are home and area homeless shelters start opening up. This is the first time these warming stations have been available, but Commander Charles Shannon says they may be back tomorrow. We're expecting more cold weather.
