Nashville received a quarter of its annual rainfall in just 26 hours. The river that is normally around 30’ in the spring and is around 40’ when it floods severely rose to whopping 52’. Downtown was severely flooded, the Symphony hall, the Arena and many other landmarks all under water. At least 5 blocks downtown were almost completely submerged. Downtown was the only part of the town that was really affected. Some of the other parts of Nashville were much luckier and only had “minor flooding” where there was only a couple feet of standing water.
This flood poses problems for businesses who managed to survive the recession. Most of them are looking forward to the coming tourist season to help restore their financial stability. With the flood customers have been deterred and wares have been destroyed. Nashville is in desperate need of volunteers. If you would like to help then please help via Red Cross or www.cfmt.org/floodrelief or HandsOnNashville.com. For those of us unable to travel and donate our time we can donate 10 dollars by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to disaster relief.

Post-it-ing a car, now it is only good if you put this much time and effort into it. At least make it pretty, this will make it impossible for the other person to get mad.
Remember pranks can and do go very wrong, so be cautious when attempting to brighten up somebody’s day with a silly trick.
