Aw, hail...


Aw, hail..., originally uploaded by lla.

The fun just keeps coming today...

I've lived here for 18 years now, and I've never seen *anything* like the events of the past 24 hours...

I'm thinking that would be pea sized hail.

I'm so glad you guys are OK! I was thinking of you all morning.

We are still in Decatur (we were suppose to be moving this weekend) & we just had the sirens and sat here on pins and needles watching that tornado pass through downtown and kirkwood. It was SO scary to see it play out on TV.

Here's hoping it stays all clear as the rest of the smaller storms go through the city tonight!!!

Holy. COW! I don't know where I've been, but I had NO idea this was going on down there! Those pictures are unbelievable--looks like a war zone. I never used to be really scared of tornadoes, until seeing the damage an F5 caused in Plainfield, about an hour north of us. (I think that was back in the early '90s.) Now they scare me and just about every spring we have to run to the basement a couple times. Anyway, I'm SO GLAD you guys are good! Craziness!

Enough already! No more mad dashes to the basement.

I hope today stays sunny and calm.

What the heck??? I've been unplugged all weekend, and your blog is the first hint I've heard of the mess. So glad you're all ok -- those storms are really nasty business. I have a friend who recently moved to Huntsville and she's building a house. I asked her if she'd have a basement. Um, no. Well, a tornado room? Well, no, tornados only really hit south of Huntsville..... uh, don't they??? Now she'll be having a tornado room. ;-) Sure hope this is your last storm report this spring!

Holy Moley! I haven't been checking out blogs recently, so I just now read that you guys were so close to the tornados. I hope that you are now having a very safe & boring time in Atlanta :)

Hey there,
How are things in cookieland? It's been pretty quiet! Are you super busy? Bored? Both? I would send you an email but our computer crashed recently. We knew it was coming so we had everything backed up. Everything EXCEPT my address book.Duh. Anyway, just popping in to say hey!
