Most of the floodwaters have washed out by now, so it would take a good bit of rain to cause more stream flooding, and a lot to cause the cumberland to flood again. Early next week could bring quite a bit of rain associated with a stalled frontal boundary, but right now it doesn't look like enough to cause more than minor flooding. Ground is pretty dry down here.

Really? I mean I know people have a need to look for someone to blame, but there were flood warnings up for all of middle tennessee all weekend. This is a little ridiculous.

For the NWS to use the word "Epic" (which is typically thrown around by us weather ethusiasts) really says something.

1000 year flood-- wow.

Just got a broadcast message from the school system concerning FEMA.  It was a "If you were affected by the floods, or know someone...here's the number to call...website... Here's the person children need to talk to concerning school supplies."
