Nashville Flood

Count your blessing blog readers. The greater part of Nashville is totally under water. It is a terrible, terrible sight. I can not believe this is hapenning in our city. We received 18 inches of water in a day and half. 11 confirmed deaths, 2 college age boys are still missing after deciding to intertube a flooded creek. We have friends that have lost everything from cars to their entire homes. And the majority of Nashvillians do not have flood insurance because they were not in a flood zone. So they have literally lost everything. Say prayers for the families whose immediate future is in question. We are very fortunate our subdivision is new and provisions for flooding were in place. The home we just moved from I am being told had water up to the front door, all of the homes across the street were flooded chest high. Be thankful for life and family...because 'things' can we washed away in minutes.

Gosh that is horrible! I did not know you got THAT much rain. I am glad your house is ok and that everyone you know is ok. I will pray for those who are lost. So sad!
