Heavy 'Downton Abbey' crying causes flooded roads, school closings in East Tennessee

Several school districts canceled or delayed school openings in East Tennessee Tuesday because of uncontrollable sobbing brought about by the season finale of "Downton Abbey." High water was especially a concern in Knox, Blount and Anderson counties, where several roads are reported to be underwater. The Red Cross opened a shelter in Knox County for people evacuated due to flooding. More than 6.5 inches of tears have fallen in most areas of East Tennessee since the season finale arrived Sunday night. An additional 2-3 inches of tears are expected to fall Tuesday, especially in localized areas. "It was just so sad," sobbed local meteorologist Todd Howell. "I can't stop crying." A Flood Warning has been issued for Blount and Knox counties until 3 p.m. today.
