W is for water! 
In our basement and in the homes of friends (Hello Mary!)
Nashville appears to be drowning. 
Opryland Hotel is clearing 2000 guests and all employees. They said it was just to be safe as the are right by the river. Apparently they have no water inside. 
I have seen horses stranded and a body floating by on the t.v. a while ago. 
This is just so shocking and sad! 
I wanted to drop a note and tell you what was going on here. 
The rain has stopped and I have seen waters recede already thankfully. 
That is all for now.

Praying for your area Phyllis, I saw it on the news last night and thought of you and so many others. Hope the rain is done!

Oh no, Phyllis!!! Praying for a quick clearing of the waters! We had severe flooding here in Mass. not too long ago, and my brother's street flooded... his entire neighborhood had flooded basements needless to say..... sadly we know just what you're going through. xo

I was thinking of you yesterday while watching the weather reports. My husband has an employee in Bellevue that was waiting for a boat to come rescue his family has the water was above their cars! Scary stuff. This is exactly what happened here last fall. Looks like you'll at least get a chance to dry out now, but it takes a long time to recover. We still have entire neighborhoods that haven't been rebuilt. Plus all the homes that have been sitting waiting for insurance/contractors now have mold!

I'm so sorry to hear that your part of the world is affected, Phyllis, but so very glad that you and your family are safe. It sure is hard to see, but hopefully the rain is finished for awhile.

Take care,

see you there! said...

Goodness, hope you continue to be ok and that things dry out for everyone.

I'll be holding good thoughts for you.
