Re: Rain. . . . We expected to get some rain over last weekend, but it was cloudy and dry (and HUMID) most of Saturday. That evening, we drove to Opry Mills Mall, which is on the other side of town and about 20 miles from our house. As we passed through downtown, we noticed that the sky east of the area was very dark, and by the time we got to Briley Parkway on the eastside of town, we were in the middle of a huge storm. We drove north on Briley toward the mall, and we were suddenly driving into the sun, again, and the road was dry. By the time we got to the mall, there was no rain.
Apparently, the rain - quite a bit of rain - hit only one portion of town, dumping about 1/2 inch of water near the airport and Donelson.
