It's finally stopped raining in Music City, but the city and Middle Tennessee have suffered incredible flood damage after taking on nearly 2 feet of rain in two days.
These photos are from the outside in (look for the goalpost in the first one), not the inside out. Here's a story about longtime Tennessean photographer George Walker, who regularly shoots the Titans, who participated in the rescue of former Vanderbilt football coach George MacIntyre.
