Stormy Saturday

Severe weather came through Atlanta Friday and Saturday. Our weather alarm went off many times warning us of the weather threats. Fortunately, we didn't have any major issues. We did have a hail storm though during one of the thundestorms. Katie's friends had just arrived for her birthday. The pea sized hail came down very fast---and sideways since the wind was blowing so hard. Once the hail stopped, the sun came out. Atlanta itself was hit very hard by a tornado going right through the downtown area. It was wild to see the destruction on the news. We had planned on taking Katie and her friends to eat in mid-town Atlanta. Although this area was not damaged, we decided to stay closer to home to avoid getting in the way of those trying to clean up---and away from all the fans in town for the basketball championship games.
