Thankfully, all is calm today, but Friday and Saturday brought thunderstorms, high winds, hail, funnel clouds and tornadoes to Atlanta, Georgia and its environs, where my sister Gail now lives. I believe this was the worst series of storms to hit the area since Gail moved down there from Rhode Island almost one year ago. Since it was scary for all of us holding our breath for her, I can only imagine what it must have been like to be in the midst of it. Adding to the worry, Gail’s daughter Kate and her husband Phil were flying in from Boston yesterday for a visit. Timing is everything, but happily, they are safe and sound as well.
Did you hear that? That was our collective sigh of relief from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Arizona and Georgia combined!
