A year ago, starting on May 1 and continuing into May 2, Nashville was assaulted with unrelenting rain. The result was too many inches of water in too little time. The rivers swelled, unable to hold it, and spilled over. Land, homes, and people who weren’t expecting the waters to rise like they did (fast, furious and in overwhelming volume) were caught unawares.
Billions of dollars in property was damaged and destroyed. Lives were lost. Disbelief reigned supreme.
I put together a then vs. now video of the flooding I witnessed right by our home. As I shot the now videos, I thought of all those in the recently devastated tornado areas. I know many are taking videos of the damage they’ve witnessed. I hope in a year they’ll be able to take now videos, too. Ones that show how much rebuilding and healing has occurred in a year.
