Last night was a real doozy in the south. A line of storms moving west to northeast brought tornadoes, thunder, lightning, wind, rain, and hail. Usually I’m a fan of storms when they’re just thunder/lightning but after what happened to my house last year, hmm, not so much a fan anymore. In fact, last night was very reminiscent of the Nashville flood in 2010.
The dogs and I just stayed indoors, only peering out the windows to see flashes of lightning, rain and hail pattering against the glass.
Thank God it passed by my and my neighbor’s homes without uprooting trees and causing drama. But that’s not the case around Nashville. I was driving around this morning, only a few hours after the rain ended, and various streets were blocked due to flooding. In fact, on one street near my house I could only barely see the rooftop of a sedan. Crazy stuff. I would’ve snapped a photo but there were other onlookers and vehicles trying to get by so I didn’t want to stop.
But I do have SOMEthing more than just words for you. In my travels around town today, I stopped to record water coming up from a sewer. Not sure I’ve ever seen this before so I thought it was worth recording. Take a look.
I’m grateful my house was spared from any damage and today, Sunday, is sunny and warm so anyone who needs to get work done (rebuilding, etc) has the opportunity.
Stay safe out there, y’all, it’s the Nashville way!
