It's serious here. People are dead and I bet much of the nation has no idea what's going on b/c there is no national coverage.
This article says it best:
Here is a link to some photos:
Matt and I came out fine with just some basement flooding. Nothing a few 5 gallon buckets, a shop vac, and some heavy lifting couldn't cure. Our biggest problem right now is the mandate to cut water usage by 50%. Small potatoes when others have lost their homes, their cars, their loved ones.
I know at least 2 people personally that lost their homes and are now in search of another.
Keep Nashville in your thoughts and if you have an opportunity to volunteer or give to the RedCross, please do so.
In other wedding related news, the Hampton Inn on 4th and Korean Veterans made it through without any damage that I know of...The water did make it up to 5th Ave. but downtown is a bowl and Korean Vets is on the upper edge of the bowl. If anyone went another direction and booked the Hilton downtown on 5th, they will be closed indefinitely. Let me know if you need other options.
See you in a couple weeks.
