Shower Chances Through Tuesday Night

This is the one-year anniversary of the historical middle Tennessee floods. - incredible story - some lasting images below from the flooded Opryland Hotel, the Tennessee Titan's stadium (LP Field), and a flooded interstate and traffic that had nowhere to go.

Nashville's airport saw 13.57" on May 1 and 2, 2010.

Franklin TN saw 14.85" on May 1 and 2, 2010. 
Kingston Springs saw 14.91" on May 1 and 2, 2010. 

This is just a sampling as we found some places that received up to 20" in just 2 days.
