Once again we are lucky as the storms roll through

Man, how long does that luck stay with us?

Over the past month or two, my family has been in the path of some pretty strong storms.  Weather people say "GET READY" and we get ready. The rain comes, the lightening makes the sky look like its daytime and then the thunder beats like a drum more than Travis Barker. 

Every time we have been lucky to only be hit with wind, rain, and a bunch of noise and the fear of the sirens to head to the basement.

Well last night after our neighboring state of Alabama (which we are only 19 miles from) got hammered all of those storms they headed for our direction and north of us and south of us. So basically all over the line of NW Ga. and SW Ga.  Yesterday Alabama was getting leveled by these storms which had tornadoes, many of them destroying parts of the state. A very good friend of ours had damage to their house.

The local news and weather was saying that it was coming right at us. I mean US. Our house, our little city.  We got the basement ready, watch the news and when the sirens went off and the sky was bright and the wind was either blasting or calm..we thought it was time.  The radar and the tv showed that the purple globs and rotation was coming our way. North of the interstate an open pipeline for destruction.  For some most awesomely great wonderful reason the storm cells would spilt and go around us. Noth and South. Like the letter V. <- Like that. We are the - and the < is the storm going around us.

People I know and work with live in areas where some tornadoes hit. Ringgold, Rome, Cartersville they got hit and did some major damage.  Everyone I know is alive and well and had some damage but they are all ok.

As of 11 am today there are reports of over 200 dead. That sucks. Weather is crazy, you never know what is going to happen.  I am a dunce when it come to weather. T is always "Lets go to the basement" and I am like "Nah, I dont feel like going downstairs"  Well it is because of her that we hopefully will always be more safe than not.

Our friend Gretta, David and their kids had damage to their home in Alabama and we finally heard from them today that while their city is like a war zone, they are all ok. T and I talked about them last night as the storms came and went.

Always be safe and prepare for times like this...well the best you can really but always try.

Glad to hear you're ok. I'm worried about people in my blogging circle, and there are a lot that are under the storm-watch right now.

That's a great post. I think too much of the time I think like you too, and say nah to the basement. Last summer the sirens were going off and the hail was hitting hard and then all of a sudden we actually saw the tornado which was about 4 miles from our home. That's when we scooped up the cats and ran for the basement. There was lots of damage to a new mall about 4 miles from our home.

Glad you all stayed safe.
