Several readers e-mailed me yesterday who were concerned about people forgetting Tennessee. With all of the news about the oil spill and the thwarted terrorist attack in New York, we seem to have forgotten about the floods ravaging the south. The floods and their storms have been responsible for at least 18 people being killed. The rains and floods have forced the evacuation of thousands of people from their homes and shut down the Opryland Hotel for the next several months because of ten feet of flooding. Oh, and if you have plans to go see the Grand Ole Opry, you better check, because the theatre has been flooded too and there is no timeline when it will open again.
I want to send out all my best wishes to everyone who lives in Nashville, and Tennessee and everywhere in the south that is suffering through all of this. I will be thinking about all of you. Thanks Diana for the pictures.
