Hello Blog Friends,
If you have been following the news at all I
am sure you have heard of Nashville, TN.
Saturday started off with rains that continued
through the day and into the night. As the
evening hours drew near, our fair city
started to sink.
Keep in mind also, that this is not just
effecting the county that Nashville is in,
this is actually so wide spread that it is effecting
most Tennessee counties.
The rains came and they stayed. It rained all
day Saturday and into the night where at
some point it actually let up. Come Sunday
morning with the storms moving in again and
carrying chances of tornado's, my fair city,
Sunday brought rains so heavy that you could
not even see across the street, and unlike usual
it did not move out fast. It rained pretty much
like that all day.
With the creeks, stream and rivers taking
on more then they can handle, flooding started.
Homes and business under water, people
losing all they have. And lifes being lost.
When all was said and done Nashville
recieved a total of 13.57 inches of rain in
2 days. Some out laying counties and towns
got up to 20 inches.
Today cleanups began, the water started going
down but not before it covered some of Nashvilles
historical places.....like Gaylord Hotel where I
know a lot of you blog people stayed just a few months
ago. It has covered all of Opry Mills Mall where I am
sure some of you ladies shopped. It has covered the
historical Grand Ole Opry as well as all the places I
am sure some of you walked on Broadway and
Please keep Nashville in your prayers. We have a lot
of clean up and a lot of work to do. But like true
Nashvillians, we have pulled together, we have supported,
we have helped, we have lent that needed hand.....we
always bond in trouble times. We will come back from
this just like we did after the tornados of 1997...but
your thoughts and prayers are always needed and
A bank located on the banks of Stones River. Loved
The Target shopping center not far from my home.
Two grown men having some fun. Course coming
out of Stones River I am not sure what kind of
critters would be in that water.
