Flood Scare: Fairgrounds

Posted in Nashville Flood 2010, Personal, Photographs, Random Image, The South by marktucker on August 18, 2010

Back in May, Nashville got sacked with three solid days of rain. Today, the skies opened again, and I think everyone is still a bit gun-shy. There is this one building over by the Fairgrounds, that got hit hard in May. The entire neighborhood was underwater. So much so, that they’re digging up their parking lot and reworking the whole building. I drove by there today, after the hard rain, and several parked cars were in danger of flooding again. And BMW’s at that. The light was just that strange color of mixture of dusk and storm and tornado and twilight.

    What an ominous image. I was immediately nervous by the flash flood warning. Amazing what a 50-100-year-old flood will do to you, huh?
