Instead of answering some of the comments on my last post and emails - I will do so with this entry.
The rain started and it seemed as if it would never stop. I do not remember it ever being so heavy that I could not see through it. Ongoing lightning and constant tornado warnings. I do not do too well with conditions like this. Kept having thoughts - may I be in the best place as this escalating time goes by.
Maybe when it happens again - I can rent someone to sit in a chair and not speak unless spoken too:) lol
I really try to remain calm and maybe it is a losing battle. It was difficult to remain peaceful
even with meditation, prayer and yoga.
Electricity out for 16 hours and when it finally came on about an hour ago - this is what I learned.
Interstates are closed, most of Nashville is flooded, many without power, schools closed tomorrow.
I am fortunate that the street the city home is one did not flood. When I walked outside a minute ago - it looks like I am surrounded by a swamp. But no flooding or standing water near my woods home. The homes on either side of this property - the old farm house and another home I built years ago - have ponds and they look like lakes.
Enough shared. I am thankful that a week of sunshine is predicted and the saturated earth will dry. I am thankful to have electricity:) Thankful that when the road clears I can go to the grocery - it has been 10 days.
Thanks to all who expressed concerned for this One Woman.
Hope all is well in your corner of the world.
