Flood Footage

      10 Comments on Flood Footage

I figured in the age of YouTube, it would only be a matter of days before footage of the recent flood would be available online. These are videos taken here in Franklin.  Some areas in Nashville were flooded much worse than this … a friend of a friend ended up with five feet of water in his house.

You can see why I feel so fortunate our house wasn’t flooded.

    I knew you lived in TN but didn’t realize it was Franklin. I grew up in Brentwood, and have spent plenty of time in Franklin. Even bought me a car from right down the street where this was filmed from Good ol’ boy Josh Ellis. Next time you do a fast food movie, please eat nothing but Krystal for 30 days.

    I’ll look you up when I go to visit my family this summer. Mom lives right off of Old Hickory Blvd.

    I’ll be danged. We’re practically neighbors. Definitely give me a shout when you visit the kinfolk.

    My wife and I had driven through the area the first part of April. We had gone to the Hermitage and then to the Loveless Cafe on our trip to Florida. Growing up and living in northern Illinois, you don’t realize how hilly some areas of the country are. All of the roads in Nashville seem to go up and down and around some type of hill, mountain, valley,etc. After seeing these videos, I can understand how some areas were flooded and others were not.

    Glad you kept dry. I had a sewer back up and had 2 inches of water in the basement once. I thought that was bad!!

    That’s one of the reasons I always liked the scenery around here: the hills and the rolling fields. The valleys are lovely too, but I know now not to buy a house in one.

    Glad you’re safe and dry. Just ordered the DVD, and have to say my favorite part is when the fat guy sees himself on TV and gets a bit worked up. Hilarious. I too, always wondered if fat people saw themselves on the news and what would be their reaction.

    I live in a flood zone in CA, but there hasn’t been a flood in over a 100 years. That probably means there will be a flood next week!

    Peter will be glad to know you enjoyed his bit. We worked together on some programming projects, and he volunteered to play the role of “Fat Guy Who Sees Himself On TV.”

    Tom, I wish the best for you and your family. I’m hoping that everything is going fine for you, and that the water isn’t causing you too much trouble. We need you for the fight against stupidity and ignorance. Keep on fighting the good fight!

    I appreciate that. We escaped with no damage at all … lucky, I guess.
