The Nashville Country RV Park in Millersville, Tn just north of Nashville. apparently has a histoy of flooding during heavy rains around the end of April. Guess what----when I was there, we had heavy rains for 2 days. The morning of the 2nd day, 2 May, I woke up to loud knocking on my door abour 0700. A firefighter was standing in knee deep water telling me I should unhook and get out of there. We made it out OK with no damage other than leaving my water hose and Sewer Solution in the water.
My gripe is that the campground manager should have warned us ahead of time to be prepared to leave at a moments notice knowing the history of the place. Several people lost their rigs.
So anyhow, avoid that place when it is raining

I'm glad y'all got out of there safely.

Nashville experienced a devastating natural disaster. On Saturday and Sunday, Middle Tennessee experienced more than 13 inches of rain shattering the previous two-day record of 6.68 inches. Tens of thousands of families have been displaced and it has been declared a disaster area. In addition, Nashville landmarks took crippling blows. The Opryland Hotel, including the Ole Opry House, has experienced millions of dollars worth of damage. Flood waters from the Cumberland River cover the infamous pews at the Opry House.

Downtown Nashville has also taken a hit. Riverfront Park, where the CMA Fest is held, is completely engulfed. The waters have taken over 1st and 2nd avenue. The Country Music Hall of Fame’s Ford Theater is three feet deep in water. A seven-million dollar organ at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center was destroyed.

More important is the residential areas. Bellevue, Goodlettsville, and Antioch are hurting badly. Historic downtown Franklin and Lebanon are completely underwater. Cities are lakes and streets are rivers.

Ten people have been found dead in Nashville alone and authorities expect to recover more bodies when the water recedes.
