Mom just called to update me on the flooding in Nashville. It sounds bad. Ironic that I've been reading all weekend about Katrina and preparing for a disaster, and my home town (adopted, anyway) is experiencing one. Mom is fine so far. While her apartment is close to the Cumberland River, she is in a second story apartment. She has food and has stored water in jugs and the tea kettle in case the water supply gets contaminated. She has it better organized than I do at this point. Heck, she's more organized than I am in most ways. My thoughts are on Nashville right now.
