I'm alittle slow in posting these. Most everyone has heard about the flooding down here in TN. More specifically, Nashville. We are fortunate to be south of Nasvhille a ways, so the flooding you see on the news, did not reach us. We did have some flooding near us. The park that we play at, was closed because of flooding. A few other low lying areas flooded.
Late Friday night/early Saturday morning, the storms rolled in. They lasted until early Monday morning. We had rain, and rain and more rain. It stormed. It thundered. We had lots of lightening. It hailed. We had tornadoes (yes, more than one), which thankfully stayed up in the sky as they past over us. Our house down here doesn't have a basement. Not many, if any have basements down here. It made weathering the storm a tad edgy and nerve wracking for this Mom. We learned that there is a storm shelter just minutes down the road, so that eased my mind a little.
Dark skies. Rain pouring down. Middle of the afternoon.

As we watched the rain pour down at our house, we watched on the computer as the interstates flooded in Nashville in just a matter of seconds. We've seen flood footage/pictures before. But they were always hundreds of miles away. This time it was close to home. The pictures are devastating of downtown Nashville. We are thankful our friends in that area are safe.
On Friday afternoon, we had some friends make a pit stop here on their way home. They were suppose to leave Nashville by bus Saturday evening. They finally made their way to the station Tuesday afternoon. Countless number of roads are still flooded. Many areas are still under water. But the sun is shining.
