here's an interesting flood shot-
the large, curved building on the right is the Country Music Hall of Fame (note the pattern of the columns are like black piano keys- see what they did there?). now, across the street from this building (to the left) is a parking lot and at the top of the parking lot (that is, cattycorner up at to the left of the CMHF) is a small building. yeah, that's my brother's catering business. by some miracle, he didn't lose power, but did end up with a mess.
for those of you not from Nashville, this picture's main intersection is 4th and demonbreun. the river is short of 1st avenue- that's how far the water came downtown alone.
