1 PicADay Project: Day 260


Two Unprecidented Days in Nashville TN May 1 & 2, 2010

I’ve posted an iPhone photo of my front lawn but this is NOTHING compared to what other people are going through right now in the metro area surrounding Nashville TN! Here’s a few highlights:

650 water rescues

8 confirmed dead

All three interstates closed

Over 18 inches of rain in two days

Cumberland River went from 37 to 49 ft which is about 9 feet above flood level

23 metro schools damaged

New cars from a new car lot floating down the street and piling up on top of each other.

A school portable trailer floating down the interstate and disentegrating when it hit an 18 wheeler.

Bridges washed out.

You always see these incredible images on TV of other places but it’s really surreal when it’s happening to your area.  My thoughts and prayers are with the people who have been hit hard.

    Wasn’t this a mess? Hope you are OK.

    • I’ve been watching on the news this afternoon. I cannot believe how widespread and how bad it is. My husband’s stuck on interstate 40 right now. he was coming back from TX. Don’t know when he’ll make it home. Hope you’re ok!

  2. Wow – the statistics are staggering! You are right – you see the images on tv and cannot really grasp what it is actually like. So sorry this is happeing in your area! Stay safe and my prayers and thoughts are with you.

  3. Wow! That is so sad!
    Hope you husband made it home OK!

    • Yes he did finally. They left San Antonio TX at 1:00 AM Sunday morning and he did not get home until Monday at 5:00PM. The bus was stuck on interstate 40 for a long time because it was under water. I heard that people coming back on planes on that Monday were looking out the windows and just crying because of all the neighborhoods under water down below. It’ll be a while before everything’s back to normal. Of course all the vintage musical instruments at Soundcheck can never be replaced. There was about 10 million dollars worth of instruments (vintage and new) and equipt stored there. Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Peter Frampton, Brad Paisley among others as well as the majority of local musicians in town lost eqpt. Thankfully that weekend was only one of two weekends that my husband did not have his basses and amps there.
