McDonald’s on Riverside Drive now Re-open

 

The McDonald's LogoClarksville, TN – It’s been 10 months since the Great Flood of 2010, but Eric Larson the owner of Larson Enterprises remembers it well. “”When the manager got here that morning at 5:00am and the water was on the far side of the intersection. We thought that it would stop by time it reached the sidewalk, but instead it kept inching up all day. The old store was raised up slightly so towards the end it was like an island surrounded by the rising water.”

Indeed many of you remember the sight of the lone car abandoned at the drive-thru window. “The driver of the car was not allowed to leave by the police, who feared that the water around the store had gotten too deep.” Larson said. “The water kept rising and before you know it, we had 2-1/2 foot of water in the store, the water got up to the table tops.”
