At first I was grumbling about missing soccer and baseball games. But soon I realized how fortunate we are compared to what so many others are going through this weekend. They have literally lost everything. It's just so tragic.
Middle Tennessee is experiencing a major flood right now. In Downtown Nashville, the water levels are reaching the 500 year flood zone. On Saturday a portable school building floated down I-24 before breaking up. A BUILDING!
Roads within a few miles of my house were completely under water. Schools are closed.
Even my office is closed because the business center in Nashville where it is located was evacuated. We are beside the Cumberland River and the levee is leaking. My office has never closed in the almost 18 years I have worked there.
A friend posted on Facebook that her kids were kayaking in the back yard!!!
Lexi was supposed to go the IA clinic at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital tomorrow (just for a check-up), but the hospital was flooded too.
Garrett said he felt like we were in the Rain Forest. Nolan said it was the greatest adventure ever!
Martin and I took advantage of the boys' rained out sporting schedule and thoroughly cleaned the house this weekend. Plus, all my laundry is caught up! I guess there really is a silver lining in every cloud!
