I have been watching the news about the flooding all week and keep thinking about you. Are you ok?

We're lucky to live on a hill and not near any river or creek. So, my house is unscathed, other than a couple of roof leaks that showed up during the two days of torrential rain last weekend. The flooding you saw on the news, however, is very serious, and the clean up will require lots of effort and funds. Nashville is lucky to have one functioning water treatment plant that escaped being flooded by 0.64 feet. The other plant is still being evaluated for flood damage and has not yet been restarted.

The rain just kept on coming last weekend--I'd never seen such continuous heavy rainfall during the 24 years I've lived in Nashville. It turns out that the 13 inch rainfall over two days is a record, and people are calling this the thousand year flood.

Out your way, there are fires to deal with, and here wind and water can play havoc with people.

I'm glad to know you're alright Estelle! We're waterlogged as well (in fact Paris was cut off from the rest of the world for awhile last Sunday) but like you I'm on a hill and so far so good. Found out I had some gutters that need cleaning though!

We had some employees from our animal shelter heading to Nashville next week for a conference in the Grand Ole Opry which unfortunately got a bit wet. It's so sad to see all the damage in the area and the loss of life. Floods are horrible.

I am glad to hear both of you made it out ok. Funny (or not) when one has that much rain, one finds one's roof and gutter's problems. We had a few of those last winter.

Glad to hear you're doin' alright, Estelle! I didn't even realise you were somewhat in harm's way until I read this thread. Shocked Needless to say, I can breathe a sigh of relief now!! <3
