We're dry at our house because we live on a hill, but the devastation around us is astounding.
My family's business center is underwater. My mother is devastated. All of our tenants have lost their businesses for the time being....unless they can work from another location. Last night, my Dad noticed the water coming up from Stoner Creek, which runs into the Cumberland. The Cumberland is drowning Nashville and it's backing up into the tributaries. We called everyone and told them to move everything important off of the ground or to take it home. Unfortunately, some didn't get the call.
My Dad's out there with his friends and his boat helping people rescue their businesses.
And that's the good news. So many people have lost their homes and we don't have flood insurance. It's never done anything like this here. Think a kind thought or send up a prayer for them. They are without their homes and the cleanup can't even start until the water subsides.
I am just so sad.
