Severe Flooding

We have lots of rain here, folks. And it's still coming. We've had over 15 inches of rain just in the last 48 hours!

The mayor declared a countywide state of emergency in Middle Tennessee today. Some roads and parts of the interstates are closed. Some areas have a dusk-to-dawn curfew in effect. Schools have been canceled tomorrow because of the flooding. Scot's work is closed tomorrow. Our phone lines are even out. (At least we have cable and internet for now.)

Here are some pics of some minor flooding we've had in our driveway and backyard. Nothing major, but this is the first time we've ever had water come in our garage.

 Scot put down some old towels for now, so we'll see if they hold.

Please pray for all the churches, businesses, and homes that have been damaged so far. There are a lot of people that have been affected, and the rain hasn't stopped yet.

  1. Amen, girl! At least the rain has stopped! I am so thankful that we live on the top of a hill, although our bottom was a river (and it has no natural water down there!)I hope you guys didn't get too much water damage before it was over!
