2010 Nashville flood: fallout in the New York Times

NY Times op-ed contributor and Nashville author Ann Patchett reflects on the fallout of The Great Nashville Flood of 2010:

The rain is over; what we’re left with is the life that follows weather. We’re waiting to hear if the water treatment plant is going to close, and when the public schools are going to reopen.

There is a charming expression in the South — when someone says he’ll see you soon, you respond, “God willing and the creeks don’t rise.” I finally get it.

The rest is worth the read.
