Nashville Flooding

Ryan and I were in Nashville last weekend, when they were hit by terrible rains and flooding (13 inches of rain in 2 days). While it was obviously raining a ton, I never could have imagined the devastation and destruction that happened. It was so crazy! (and heartbreaking!!) It is probably the most severe "natural disaster" we've ever been in. We left Nashville Sunday morning, so we were able to get out...I think if we would have left even an hour later, we wouldn't have made it. Here are a few pictures...although you can find way worse online.

These first 2 were taken on Saturday on Highway 100 (south of the Harris Teater headed toward Loveless). By Sunday, the street was a river (literally) and obviously not drivable. I spoke to some employees at Loveless Cafe Sunday morning...they were stranded as the 100, 70S, I-4o, and McCrory ln were all closed.




This is our hotel Sunday morning. We were staying near Vanderbilt at the Courtyard Marriott.

This was taken on our drive home Sunday morning. We were on I-65 N, about 20 minutes north of downtown.
