Watching News2 and I-24 near Hickory Hollow under water again (like 2010) with cars underwater.  Cumberland River rising.  Don’t think the Cumberland will do what it did in 2010…but it sure does remind us all how quickly things can change…and just how important it’s going to be to add a flood wall in downtown.  Also…has got to make all developers on the east bank (like River North) think twice.

Thankfully the Cumberland is expected to crest just under 42’ this time(about where it was last Feb.) so flooding downtown is going to be minor. My heart breaks for everyone in SE Nashville along Seven Mile and Mill Creeks.

So Nashville added another resident last night... Turner Wallace Chinetti 9 pounds 6 ounces. 20 inches.  Mom and baby are doing great! He’s ready to argue about scooters, height re

I am humbled that NashvilleNowNext did a feature on my photo work here at Urban Planet Nashville. https://nashvillenownext.com/2021/04/02/the-hollingsworth-reel-vol-1-highlighting-the-work-of-nas

North, South, East, and West.  All done today except for South. The East view you get the stadium but not a whole lot past that in the background.

Several friends in Franklin who live in Cottonwood already moving all of their furniture and stuff to 2nd floor/attics in anticipation of flooding similar to 2010. Their houses were devastated in '10 and so sad to see it happening again. Harpeth River predicted to crest within inches of 2010.  No reports from Bellevue or predictions, as of yet, but the Harpeth took out so many neighborhoods there last time. Just hoping and praying it won't happen this time.

The Cumberland River this morning near downtown.  Another 15-20  ft. and we could have trouble.  

Looking north from the KVB Bridge:

Hoping the forecast for the Cumberland verifies. Expected to crest just shy of 42’, the same level as the February 2020 flood. We got quite a bit less rain this time around(just over half) compared to 2010.

Simultaneously hoping the forecast for the Harpeth River doesn’t verify. Hopefully it crests soon and recedes quickly.

I will bet it would have if we had gotten another 7 inches of rain today, like we did in 2010. Remember that was a two day rain event with about 14 inches of rain.

The Harpeth River near Kingston Springs;

I went canoeing back when it was a mere creek. Hope everyone around Nashville is safe. Flooding is also an issue here in Miami area but more from the ocean and climate change.

There's a lot of roads closed in Murfreesboro. There are several by my house in the Rockvale area. Luckily no deaths reported. That's terrible about the deaths in Nashville.

A lightning strike blew up the internet modem at my home last night, and Comcast won't be able to get a repairman out to fix things until Friday morning.  Hence, the normal amount of photos (which are all stored on my desk top computer) and other links on news stories I post will be severely curtailed for the next several days.

Very sorry. I wonder if that's the lightning strike that literally jolted us out of bed last night. Really loud, and really close.....

I bet it was! Tweet from NashSevereWeather said the strike was at Belmont and very powerful. Woke me up over in East

While I certainly hope it doesn't happen I'm a little worried about the past years' natural disasters (flooding, tornado, pandemic) and the bombing might have an impact on Nashville's growth rate. It may be too early to tell but I  hope for the best.

No worries about that. Spoke to a new Nashville resident that has been here for literally 2 weeks and they had never heard of the 2010 flood, or even the tornado from last year. (Hopefully), one year from now, nobody will remember the pandemic 

People forget quickly. Very few people research natural disasters before moving to a new location

I didn't even realize there was a flood that put Opryland underwater in 1975 until yesterday.

For a few years afterwards several Opryland buildings had signs that indicated the location of the flood line on the structures. Seems I recall that the flood happened just a couple of weeks before the spring opening day, but with “all hands on deck” they were able to open on time.

I worked there at the time of the flood. When the water went down a few days later, I had to help clean out the frozen meat locker in one of the restaurants. You grab a shovel (all the meat floated off the shelves and on to the floor) take a big gulp of air, run in the locker and grab a shovel full of that stuff, run quickly out and dump it in the can. Then repeat. Then go home and throw away your jeans.

Good times.

I think I know what you mean. I took my two sons to the landfill last week to dump about a ton of building demolition debris and brush. We couldn't move fast enough!  Threw away our old clothes and shoes.  We ran through the hosue buck naked when we got home. Should have added that this was right after the massive rains we had midweek.  The muck was utterly disgusting.  As one of the boys said, "Dad, it smells like a mix of manure, decayed flesh, and CABBAGE!"   LOL... didn't know he knew what cabbage smelled like.

I live in N. M’boro and the smell floats our way once or twice a week…and it smells like a 1000 dead dogs (I’ve smelled 1 dead dog before in the woods near my house growing up…so I’m imagining what 1000 of those would smell like).

I wouldn't worry about that at all.  Houston is still one of the fastest growing cities in the country in spite of its three  recent "500-year" floods, one of which also involved a Cat 4 hurricane:

  • Memorial Day Flood of 2015
  • Tax Day Flood of 2016
  • Hurricane Harvey in 2017

San Francisco still has some of the planet's most expensive real estate despite the constant threat of a major earthquake.  There might be a few people who are turned off by the wacky weather we've experienced the last few years, but by and large, people are quick to forget these things.

Changing the subject a little bit.

I'm constantly looking at YouTube for aerial drone videos of Nashville. The thing is, so many of them are out of date-and in Nashville's case if the video is older than 6 months it is out of date.

So I wondered if there is a local Forum Member who could do for Nashville what Mark is doing -only instead of still photos the occasional drone video of the City-not just downtown but also in the neighborhoods and suburbs. Basically keeping everyone up to date on what's happening around Nashville in terms of development and growth.

I would definitely subscribe if anyone is able and willing!
