In case you haven't seen or heard, there are devastating floods in Nashville, Tennessee.
It's totally scary how much damage has resulted. At least 20 people have been killed. Homes, businesses, cars flooded out and roads swept away. The damage is estimated at over $1 billion, which seems like an unfathomable amount of money.
I am a big fan of Nashville, the vibe of the city is so friendly and rich in musical history. I ran through Nashville's neighborhoods in 2007 for its Country Music Marathon, and more recently visited last October. Zak and I stayed at Gaylord Opryland Resort, parts of which are now submerged in 10 feet of water. It is just crazy that there is so much damage and destruction.
My heart really goes out to those who lost their homes and property, not just in Nashville but in all of the neighboring areas.
