Just want to give a quick report on the flooding here in middle Tennessee. The water has receded in most areas and yesterday the Mayor of Nashville released the damages figure which is an estimated 1.54 billion for Davidson county alone. Up here in my little neck of the woods we're moving forward. Most folks have food, water and shelter which is amazing since its been just a little over a week. We're trying to concentrate on two neighboring counties in which the infrastructure has been all but destroyed. Hickman and Cheatham counties. These folks still need massive amounts of help now. They can't wait for government assistance as they have no water, electricity and in many cases no roads or means of travel. We're only going to accept donations until this Saturday, the 15th. The water and food we have now is being delivered to these counties and any funds we receive from now till Saturday will be directed there as well. Thanks so much for all your help, kind words and thoughts. If you're interested in helping out you can still visit http://hubpages.com/hub/Devastating-Flo … -Tennessee
I'm not a member of any organization nor are the friends that have dedicated huge amounts of time to help me in this endeavor. To date we've distributed approximately 4,000 bottles of water, almost 2,500 pounds of non-perishable food and assisted in cleaning 22 houses that were salvagable. Not bad for 5 guys that said "We've got to do something". We couldn't have done one tenth of it without your help. Thanks to all! You're the best!
Wow! good for you and the other 4 for rolling up your sleeves and helping your neighbors out......
It's gonna sound very weird to say but we actually enjoyed it. The circumstances were terrible but I do believe we felt as good as the folks we helped out. We're not the only ones doing this. There are groups all over the county doing the same thing. No big organizations, just folks helping folks.
Thanks all. We got together last night to see what else we could do with what we had left. Its funny how we still think we haven't done enough. Once we got started it was almost addictive.
Thanks for keeping us updated Tobey. You are doing wonderful things. I agree with RebekaELLE, You get back what you put forth in life!
