FROM HOUSE ORGAN: Flood, Sweat and Tears, tales from the deluge

Arthur Lawson, an environmental tech at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, relies on Metro’s bus service to get to work from his home near Historic Edgefield in East Nashville.
Due to flooding in the basement of Children’s Hospital on May 2, he was called in to work early to help clean up the mess.
He walked the three blocks to his bus stop but the bus never came.

“I thought, I’m in trouble,” Lawson said. “I called and said I’m running late but that I would be there. I just started walking.”
