The high winds and rain that blew across Rutherford County Friday afternoon left a rash of crumpled finders in the wake. There were numerous vehicle crashes in all parts of the area.
This was all a result of Tropical Storm Cindy, that was downgraded to a depression on Thursday. In addition, the storm sweep was farther north than originally expected, and this area was only hit with a brief period of nasty weather.
That was not the case with the mid-west, where Cindy left a torrential amount of rain.
The storm's low-pressure system is being absorbed by a cold front, which translates into heavy rainfall this weekend in the D.C. area, and increasing as the storm moves northward through the mountains.
This event was a great opportunity to visit the ARRL Amateur Radio Field Day participants. The event continued for 24-hours son Saturday at 1 to Sunday at 1 in the afternoon.
The Stones River Amateur Radio Club communicated with all parts of the world from the Smyrna campus of the Tennessee Technology Center.
