I can always count on MemphisWeather.net (@memphisweather1) to tweet out lots of useful information. Today MemphisWeather.net linked to another weather site’s article, Which college football teams are the most likely to have their games delayed by lightning?

Memphis was not in the top 20, with an 0.64% chance of having a lightning-induced game delay.

City Market has been a great resource for Downtowners and I am sure that Cooper-Young residents are going to love it. Great salads, great breakfast sandwiches, great deli, great smoothies. I took home food from the grab & go last night.
