I have talked about the intense rain we have had here in Chattanooga and south east Tennessee this week. Well today the effects of that constant rain were made very apparent in how much damage its caused.
This is what is left of a Subway sandwich shop after a mudslide destroyed it. There is so much water in the ground that it just gave way and leveled the building. Fortunately there were no customers inside at the time. Next to it is a popular barbecue restaurant that has been closed for the day for safety reasons.
There is lots of standing water all over the area. Friday the local school system closed out of precaution. We are tired of the rain and hope to dry out in the coming days.
All that green and yellow stuff is rain and it’s going to be here in most of the week. The ground is already saturated with water from previous rain events. Expecting some flooding too. Let’s hope for the best this week. Staying dry is going to be a challenge.
It’s nice to see a rainbow when you have a lot of rain.
Life and destruction comes from rain.
It finally stopped raining here in the Chattanooga area. We have had 3 straight days of it and we haven’t seen the Sun since Friday I think. Rumor has it that it will make an appearance today. I know rain is a necessary thing but when it keeps coming it can be hard to get around. The rain can give you the blues especially if you make your living outdoors. Needless to say I am ready to dry out a bit. Excuse the language of my graphic but the sentiment is real.
