Nashville and Surrounding area Flooding We are all OK

Letting everyone know that we are OK.  Our home only had slight damage from this weekends storms.  13 inches of rain in two days, never saw anything like it. 
Elect power and INTERNET was lost after a scary lightning storm.  Only flooding I had was into my converted three car garage and my stand alone garage.
I was so Blessed that was the extent of the damage along with my drive way.  My neighborhood flooded two houses down!  Along with huge downed trees. 
Here is a link from UTube that shows the major highway I 24 and the flooding. 
this link shows the house floating down the freeway and crashing from cbs news I think.
This link shows the same area Rescue of a trucker.
Gary one of my partners had gone up to Green Hills and this is his route to get back.  I called him on his cell phone and told him why he was stuck in traffic.  He had no clue.  He managed to turn around after sitting 4 hours in that backed up traffic.

With so many tornado touch downs and warnings it dawned on my that my baby Shiloh (the black dog) is new and I had not trained her as of yet- to follow me into the only safe place which is my closet.  With cookies, my camera, plus my cell phone during one of the tornado take cover warnings we went in and practiced.  Here they are are looking at what??!!   I have them sit/stay for at least 15 mins.
From Shiloh
The brown one is Chelsea, have had her for 8 years now.  A rescue dog that was beaten terrible.  The small white one is Charlie the Maltese that was dumped and made it to my house and Shiloh the black dog that I removed.  Her story is on the side page if you want to read it.

The devastation up in different area's -heart breaking and there are still rescues (people trapped in their homes) going on as I type this.  So many deaths that it is upsetting to be typing this.  We are going up tomorrow to help out with the Red Cross. 

So to my Friends and family, I am posting from my Verizon cell phone and hope to have home internet back soon.
Lots of love and hugs,
