Rainy Night in New York City
Took this with Canon SX120IS from the top of the Rockefeller Center.
from my perspective
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.
It was soooo rainy and windy in NYC today that there were tons of victims. Here’s just some of the one’s I saw on 42nd street. Even my $10 umbrella that I bought last night was a victim. I bought another that was a little more expensive today and I made sure I hung on to it real tight. Wish I had a dollar for every victim today! Maybe I should move to New York and sell umbrellas for a living.
Here’s a photo that I took while looking out the window of the Tennessee Aquarium on a rainy day in Chattanooga . This is the Market Street Bridge that connects downtown Chattanooga with the North Shore District. I think this is a beautiful bridge. Chattanooga is a wonderful place to visit. It has a lot of things to see and do including Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and the Tennessee Aquarium.
