tornado tears through atlanta

my mom called early this morning to make sure joe and i were ok. a tornado hit downtown atlanta last night, and she wanted to make sure it hadn’t moved up to our area. there was no warning as the storm blew through just after 9:30 p.m., damaging restaurants where people were eating, the georgia dome where the sec men’s basketball tournament was being held and phillips arena, where the atlanta hawks were playing. the cnn center, where joe’s mom works, and the adjoining omni hotel were damaged. centennial olympic park also was hit. the pictures are just unreal. no was killed, but 16 were were taken to grady memorial hospital and one was taken to atlanta medical center for treatment.

we heard thunderstorms last night while we were in bed, but didn’t think much about them. this morning, we realized our power had gone out because our clocks and computer had been reset. i’m just glad the tornado didn’t move up this way.
