"When I came in and turned the water on and was like we have no water," says business owner Sherese Dasilva. "I know it wasn't the bill and I called and they said the main is down and they have no idea how long it's gonna be."
"If the restaurant's not open, the tattoo place is not open upstairs, they have to use water to wash their hands and keep clean, we're not gonna get much business in here," says Dasilva.
"The roads were horrible," says store clerk Amber Cisco. "I was actually 15 minutes late getting here because the traffic was so backed up."

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
