Okay, I'm not sure how to embed these videos directly, but please click on the links. The videos aren't very long.


This video of a rock quarry:

And this one from an hour or so later, after the helicopter refueled:

Be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor.

Watch out on ebay for the moldy flooded game sales. That happened to me after Katrina and I was getting some rediculously low price games. Then the reality set in. If it is too good to be true then it is. Prayers go out to the victims tho./DOCarrrh

Thanks for your concern Amy. You of course, already know I made it home just fine, though it took a little longer than I expected.

I chronicled my weekend in the geeklist, but it does get into some g***s discussion, though not much as I didn't play very much.

I am currently more concerned about Rick, Devon, and the rest of the Organizers, who had intended to run the Tennessee Game Days Convention through to Sunday afternoon.

Word was that Opry Mills, and the Opryland Hotel Flooded in, and the guests were evacuated that day to McGavock High School.

There were also many out of towners that were up from Atlanta and Down from Kentucky whom I hope are safe either in Nashville, or made it home.

Actually, I didn't. I saw your status about a minute after posting this.

The Opryland Hotel evacuated 1500 guests and employees last night due to lack of power. Here it is this morning. There's 6 feet of water inside:

My goodness. That is amazing. To think, my car was parked in the middle of that lake just yesterday morning.

I find all of this very surreal.

My best friend and my brother both live in Nashville. I haven't heard back from either of them directly, but I was told that they're both doing well. I was just there in March; strange to think of how differently it looks now.

Devon just checked in on the Nashville Game Group List, and said that he was home safe today. He also noted that the TGD Game Library is currently being stored in a storeroom about one and a half floors above the current flood level in the hotel. As of right now, they believe the game collection will be safe as well.
