The storms that have been devastating several states for the past few days moved through North Georgia last night. Thirteen known dead in Georgia thus far, and about 125 in Alabama. Many schools in NW Georgia are closed today due to damage, no power, or blocked roads.
We moved vehicles under cover last night, as it looked like our area might at least get hail damage, then we both stayed up late watching the weather news and monitoring the storm progression. All the bad stuff danced south of Mayberry, so we only got rain and thunder…no damage.
Our hearts go out to all those who have lost family, friends, homes, and businesses as this storm careened across our country. Seeing the devastation on TV is truly heartbreaking. Dick’s niece and family in hard-hit Birmingham only lost power for a little while, and have a lot of litter in their yard this morning…small price to pay in the scheme of things.
So the sun is shining here in paradise this morning. There is no angry wind blowing, the water in the lake is peaceful outside…we are safe and blessed.
Life is good, y’all!
