Nashville, TN Gaylord Opryland Hotel just before going underwater

My wife and I visited the Opryland Hotel in the rain on Sunday May 2nd. The majority of the hotel was without electricity and they were frantically pumping out the tunnels in the basement. The guests, that were still there, were all sitting on their balconies since they had no light in their rooms. Cards seemed to be the game of the day. The fountains were not flowing and all the businesses were closed however, the hotel had no problem allowing us to walk around and take pictures. When we left we had a bit of an adventure finding the one nonflooded slot in the parking lot to get off the property. We found out on the news, the next day, that where we were walking was at least 10 feet under water. It still amazes me that the media has virually ignored the plight of Nashville.
