<p>midmo, wow. Your poor son! I just didn't realize how dangerous conditions are.</p>
<p>I guess I better put a call into Residential housing and see what they are recommending as so many people planned road trips to empty spring term dorm rooms...son is doing summer sessions and is home for a brief while.
Curmudgeon, I read that the water may rise more so I hope your daughter's roommate's driveway is long and that river not close to their vehicles and foundation. </p>
<p>Golly! this is serious business
Mom of Wild Child, sorry you are stuck with no return flights allowed into the Nashville airport. Makes me think that flying in for us at the last minute would be an issue with other travelers backed up and getting in mid week. If you can get a reading on expressways, let me know later this week. I see that some of the postings on Channel 4 were being challenged by bloggers who lived near some of the roads reported flooded.. so I suppose all such information is quite fluid (no pun!) at the moment.</p>
<p>Last time I drove into Nashville, I was really surprised by the numbers of multiple wrecks backing things up between Knoxville and Nashville..a windy stretch of highway heavily traveled by trucks and cars. People died that day. I was just a lot younger when I used to do this trek from middle TN to Virginia and used to worry about nothing sans cell phone or airbags. Older and more aware of things now.</p>
