March 26, 2013: It's still very cold here in Nashville. Parts of the ground are covered by last night's snow. It is still really cold and windy. Too cold for late March in Tennessee. This late winter weather has caused traffic problems and school closures in many counties in middle Tennessee.
Earlier this week in California a private security guard was shot and killed. The security guard was not on duty at the time of the shooting.

After the fight an unidentified suspect shot the security guard multiple times. The security guard died at the scene of the crime. Two other people that were at the party were also shot.

March 25, 2013: Last night was a very cold and windy night for early Spring here in Nashville. I had to cover a security guard post last night, too.
