Hi, everybody. I've been glued to the storm coverage just like a lot of people. In our particular part of metro Atlanta, we got socked with a scary looking and sounding storm (that kind of ominous lightning that never lets up, just flashes constantly), strong winds and rain, but no property damage and no injuries to ourselves. There was a lightning strike near my MIL's house, and she said it sounded like a bomb went off.
My family in Alabama was not so lucky. I spoke with my Mom and sisters in Huntsville. They say north Alabama is without power, and will be for several days. There's limited gas available, and cars are lined up for hours. Refrigerators and freezers full of food are going to waste. My Aunt Georgia's house in Cullman took a direct hit from the tornado, but the group in her basement, including my Dad, who had just arrived, are all ok. Thank you to God!
My heart goes out to those families who were not so lucky, and who suffered terrible loss and destruction in these storms.
