Rain Rain Go Away...

So apparently while we were out of town it rained. And rained. And rained. The county schools we out of session and their were roads closed because of standing water. Luckily, most of the water has gone but there are still many people who have had lots of water damage. Our little apartment stayed dry and we are checking out the new house this week to make sure that it held out the water as well.

We should all consider ourselves fortunate though our neighbors in Nashville didn't fair so well. As we flew over Nashville, it was very obvious that there was water where it wasn't supposed to be. The river looked swollen and the whole city looked wet. Hopefully they will be able to recover soon because Nashville is such a great city.
The crazy thing about these pictures is that they were all taken this past Saturday which is exactly one week after the rain storms occurred. It makes me wonder what these places looked like on Monday or Tuesday of last week. It also makes me pretty glad we were not in BG!
