The 2010 Flood in Nashville
Stayed home Monday due to the flooding. My house was fortunate, a lot of others, not so much. This picture was taken at the end of my driveway. There is a creek that runs under a bridge as you turn into my drive. A big part of that (the bridge) was washed away in the flood.
The picture below was taken after the water receded. As I said, our house was fortunate as there was no actual damage to the house only the driveway suffered. I was able to get out and go in to work yesterday.
As I drove past Nashville it was so surreal--seeing the city where I live and play under water. No, I don't work in Nashville but in an outlying community southeast of Nashville. The town I work in had some flooding too but not as bad as some other areas. Check out this video clip of the Nashville flood--no better song or singer to be the background for some pictures of the devastation. Keep us in your prayers!
