Morning Coffee – Five Days And Counting

Flooded Farmland In Obion County

It’s been five days since the rain came. In part of this state, you wouldn’t know that Nashville, Dyersburg, Clarksville, Cheatham County and other smaller places are still underwater. The rivers and creeks are receding but the damage in this state in insurmountable. Nashville alone is looking at $1 billion dollars in damage. For those of us who avoided getting wet, we have watched this crisis unfold with horror and amazement. We continue to wonder what will happen next.

This is a disaster that will hit us in phases as we said yesterday.

Different communities will have different needs. Our state budget was a mess before but now we are looking at the realities are that we haven’t seen anything yet.

Yet the spirit of many good and decent people has been awe-inspiring.
