Running Log...

Ok you amazing Blog readers emailed me earlier telling me you wished that you could see the telethon tongiht! So I have decided to randomly blog through the Anderson show and the telethon... Here we go....

What an emotional night it is in the great Nashville, Tennessee! Vince Gill is putting on an impromptu telethon on one of the local channels, Anderson Cooper is here and there are alot different fundraisers that are going on and being planned. Also tomorrow is trash pick up day and its very hard to drive down the road and see peoples belongings, dry wall, carpet, toys, ruined Christmas decor.... out on the curb to go to trash! I ran a few errands tonight and I saw a muddy crib and baby mattress out by their mailbox's and I just teared up... its all just sad!

The country music singers are coming out in droves tonight and stepping up to the plate. You know everyone still looks in like they are in shock. Keith Urban just looked at a loss for even having to be on a telethon for his town! He lost a lot of equipment and says a lot of other singers have too but he is right a lot of people have lost everything.

Anderson Cooper just apologized for not giving the attention to Nashville that it deserves(I feel like that was to me...LOL)! I love Anderson(did you know that)!

Brad Paisley is dead on! We need help just like what Anderson is doing! Brad just announced there will be another telethon a week from Sunday~ He is right they may have lost a lot of music equipment but the people that play those instruments are still here!

Anderson is right we are going to need help for months to come! They are right we are in the transition phase we were running off the adrenaline of the flood and now people are faced with the reality of having NOTHING and more than most likely don't have flood insurance! So then what? How do people restart their whole lives with what they have in their checking account?

Just laughed at Stephanie's tweet- "Looks Like Anderson saw the bright Southern Sun Today"~

Again Anderson apologized for not being here earlier! Lets just all Love THE Silver Fox Anderson Cooper!

I talked to my Dad tonight(he doesn't live here) and I was telling him about it and he just didnt get it! You just cant comprehend it and it just doesn't seem real! Hopefully we will start getting more media attention! Sad that this kind of devastation is based on the Media!

Im a little jealous of little Will that just got to shake Anderson Cooper's hand!

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill give Anderson a tour of Nashville. Tim is right one street might be fine you drive around the corner and it looks like a war zone! I think Tim might be thinking it should be the TimMcgraw360 show- let the Cooper talk! They announced they will be doing a fundraiser in June!

The telethon has earned $1,615,356.00  so far and growing!! Miss Taylor Swift donated $500,000

Billy Dean just said that Vince Gill is the Big Brother of Nashville and I have to agree! Vince just said he was trying to convince Opryland Hotel to leave it with the water in it and rent the rooms cheap and you can fish from the room!

CoolPeopleCare.Org- to buy t-shirts! Created buy a bloggger! It is running super slow because its being hit big time!!! Have patients(I dont have that)!

Dont forget to link up her Nashvilles post to here! You can link up your past ones, new ones anything to do with Nashville!!!!

The CNN reporter said that the tourist attraction is what this city needs! Do I see a blogger get toghether soon????????????????????

You are so lucky to have so many famous people donating and raising money there.

You are right though. Until you go through such a disaster you can not begin to comprehend the devastation.

Cedar Rapids has almost hit the 2 year mark since the flood and they are just starting to remove abandoned homes. Many businesses never came back. It is still not the same. I'm not sure of the extent of the damage there, but it will not be fixed over night. It is a long healing process.

Here are a couple links to the 08 floods of Cedar Rapids. Some of the 1st one also has some of the aftermath, to give you an idea of what's to come.

They have a drop off location today in Knoxville, TN at the Wal-Mart on Clinton Highway to help out Nashville. If anyone lives near Knoxville, they are collecting supplies today and then delivering them tomorrow to Nashville. They said they had plenty of bottled water but needed things like blankets, food, and cleaning supplies like Clorox bleach to be donated. Just wanted to pass along the word.

I've been reading and seeing your posts on Nashville but I have yet to comment... I just don't know what words I could say to help make this terrible diaster any better(there are none!). Please know that I am thinking and praying for you and Nashville however. Stay safe little lady, xo
