As some of you may not know (because it’s not gotten a whole lotta coverage in the national media), this past week Nashville and much of middle Tennessee suffered catastrophic floods after a weekend of torrential rains – more than 13 inches in less than 48 hours. Thousands of homes were inundated, along with much of the city’s downtown and major parts of its economic infrastructure.
Our house, which is on very high ground, was spared any damage, though the entrance to our development is not far from one of the rivers that flooded its banks and numerous homes in our neighborhood were not as fortunate.
This morning Ann and I went out to help with the clean up of a place called Norm’s River Roadhouse, a small bar/restaurant and basement listening room/venue not too far from home that we have visited often. Here are some photos from the clean up effort. Click this picture to open the slide show:
