For those of you that watch the Weather Channel, you were quite aware, no matter what part of the country you lived in at the time, that on May 1, 2010, Nashville recieved 3 months of rain in a 48 hour period. DownTown Flood
I will never forget turning on the TV that Sunday afternoon, only to see the subdivision where one of my single gal friends lives. All one could see was the roof tops of her condominiums surrounded by water! Little red islands in a sea of brown. I was horrified. I kept flipping the channels while saying out loud, “This can’t be right.” I placed a few frantic calls to her — but no answer.
When I did finally hear from her the next day, the worst was confirmed. She had fled her condo. Her car was a complete loss, and so was the entire first floor of her home. I was in shock. “It happened so fast!” were the words one heard repeatedly all over Nashville.
Three years later, we are still here. And those of us that lived through it can say, we survived. Those of us in Nashville at the time are now on the other end of the experience. Yes. It was tough. But we made it. And we are OK.
There are times when you think it’s the end of the world. It’s over. Life as you knew it. Perhaps, let the reminder of our flood be an encouragement to you. You will get to the other side of whatever waters you are currently wading through. It just takes time.
Just my thoughts,
