Yes, I live in Atlanta. No, I'm not near the storm damage in downtown....4 to 5 miles north of there. Had lots of thunder & lightening & water here, but no flooding or that horrid wind!

Thank God the storm missed you! I live in the middle of tornado alley here in Oklahoma and know just how devastating tornados can be. You're thoughtful to have let us know you are ok. I didn't know you and Stacey lived so close together. Have you ever met?
