Rain, rain and more rain!

Wow...we knew it was a big front, but who knew it would create flash floods in Rutherford County and Nashville. I-24 and I-65 have both been closed today due to flooding. Tornado warnings all over the midstate.

It's a good thing we got our workday at Highland Heights done when we did. Even though we got drenched, we got 'er done thanks to some awesome men and women, including my husband, standing on a piece of furniture to stow an extra-long 2x4 away in the rafters.

We filled a 20-cubic-yard dumpster in no time flat with lots of non-salvageable stuff
then they loaded and took two pickups full of "stuff" to the dump, twice.

When all was said and done, we were left with one artifact that remains a mystery - if this belongs to anyone, you are welcome to come take it home. Hate to say it, but that new fishing boat may come in handy if this weather keeps up...we may need to row out of the neighborhood!
