TRYING TIMES: Operator Bill Faeth, owner of Silver Oak Transportation in Nashville, Tenn., has experienced the challenge of a business dealing with a disaster. While his chauffeured operations remained functional and unscathed during the record floods of the past week, his other business, Glow Golf at the Opry Mills Mall near Opryland, sustained water damage. Faeth has documented some photos and flooding accounts on the Silver Oak web site.
The clean-up will occupy Faeth for several weeks. Faeth wrote in an e-mail to LCT: "The flooding came on extremely fast and no one, not even TEMA and our local Army Corp of Engineers, thought it would flood until it was too late on Sunday evening. . . . I have been dealing with the devastation of my GlowGolf business at the Opry Mills Mall and redirecting group travel that was scheduled at Opryland this week."
We wish Bill the best in his efforts to fix the damage and recover his lost business. -- M.R.
