    Wow Adam we're praying for all of you back there. Glad to hear you're OK. We have a large Church family in Smyrna and they're keeping us posted.

    Take care Buddy.

    Thank you, sir. All prayers are of course welcome.

    Fortunately for your friends in Smyrna, the flood waters are receding relatively quickly. The Army Corps of Engineers has been releasing water from the Old Hickory dam, which ultimately holds back the Stones River, which is what flooded the Smyrna/Murfreesboro area. The dam had to release water because the lake was threatening to top the dam, which would be very bad because the dam was never designed to be topped and could break if it were topped. The unfortunate side effect of this is that it ultimately means more water in the Cumberland, which means more flood water for Nashville. A delicate balance, to be sure. At one point yesterday, the Old Hickory dam was releasing 110,000 cubic feet of water per second in order to keep lake water under control. This lessens flooding in Rutherford County, but increases it in Davidson County. In theory, at least, the increase in flooding in the larger Cumberland River should be pretty small relative to the decrease in flooding in the smaller Stones River.


    I sure wouldn't want to be the guy having to make those kinds of decisions.

    Thanks for the update Adam. My son and daughter said that (yesterday) Mt Juliet businesses had knee deep water. For water to get that deep in the business district of Mt Juliet, it must be really bad.

    All that water and none to drink. Water is going to be twice a problem now.:(

    Damn near everywhere within a 75-mile radius yesterday had at least knee-deep water if it was an area that was not on a steep slope.

    I'm really quite astounded at the relative lack of national coverage of this tremendous event.

    For those who would like to get a better picture, some local coverage:

    You're right. Seems relatively quiet in liberal media world. Must not be enough evidence of only minorities getting victimized. Maybe we can set up a liberal themed protest that gets cancelled and the O Blah Blah media puppets will show up to agonize over the cancellation.
