Somebody is going to make a really interesting book out of this. Too bad I don’t have time to write it right now.
Nashville and Middle Tennessee took a beating last week. We are talking hundreds of miles underwater, three interstates closed, biggest flood in 80 years…. yeah big flood.
Sounds a little like a little Katrina. Only different.
Compare cost and you will find property values in Nashville are a lot lower than right on the coast. So the same amount of physical damage equals a lot lower cost. Only a billion in damage so far.
Lives lost is an interesting comparison. How much of the difference is due to the storm and how much is due to the response to the storm?
Compare the response of Bush and Obama. Contrast?
How about the response of the media? Big difference.
What about Twitter, and the rest of the Internet? Very different responses.
The response of the people who live in both cites are very different too.
Both are music cities famous for southern hospitality and an easy pace.
Cities so much alike and yet so different. Can’t wait to read the book.
