What makes this amazing is the title. Isn't it crazy how a title can change the way you see a picture?

Nashville Flooding

As you probably know, Nashville is in the middle of some serious flooding. At least seventeen people have died. The Opryland Hotel and the Opry Mills mall are completely flooded; lots of downtown Nashville has been evacuated due to the rising Cumberland River overflowing its banks.

Here are a few pictures I took today.

So I'm moving here next weekend. The water was too deep for me to feel comfortable wading in (it would be at least crotch high here; there are steps and a porch that lead up to the door) so I don't know if the water actually got inside. I just hope the water level doesn't go up further before it goes back down. I guess that's what I get for choosing a house on "Riverside Drive". At least none of my important things were there, and everyone is safe, though.

There were literally people kayaking in my front yard.

This was my house this morning, before the water rose even more. At this point there was not water inside.

The Cumberland River way over its banks

This is Barclay Avenue in East Nashville at about 6:00 p.m. on 5/3/10. It's the road adjacent to my house.

My thoughts go out to all those affected worse than I was.
