Middle Tennessee Flood of 2010

You'll never guess what happened at our adoption sale yesterday. That's right - FLASH FLOOD. The water started rising very rapidly while we got alerts of tornado warnings, flash flood warnings, and severe thunderstorm warnings. IN A BARN!

We all made it home okay, seeing flooded homes, flooded interstates, people not being able to get home. The rain, flooding, and tornado warnings continued throughout the night. In my neighborhood alone, houses have been submerged, one house even caught fire and burned to the ground. People are being evacuated. Thankfully, we are on the highest point in our neighborhood. No flooding for us yet.

This is a video of yesterday at about 3:30. Keep in mind that the rain has not let up ALL NIGHT AND ALL DAY. And it will continue all day today, through the night, and maybe into tomorrow. MORE FLOODING. They're even closing down interstates. This video is our mad dash to get everything packed up so it didn't get ruined.

I also have some pictures (that I DIDN'T TAKE). They show how bad the flooding is here. But, trust me, I'm not stupid enough to go out in this weather.

The President has declared us a disaster zone. There's no telling what will happen next.
