Rain, wind and a possible tornado…

Tornado warnings and tornado watches are out tonight (Thursday night) for parts of middle and north Georgia. It includes the metro Atlanta area. We welcome the rain to wash away the pollen that has accumulated like snow on cars, trucks and other vehicles. But it’s the potentially deadly tornadoes that keeps us on the alert. If the tornado warning siren sounds, my wife has a plan. She, I, and our two felines will gather in the bathtub of the downstairs bathroom. It’s good to have a retired engineer spouse who’s thought this through. I’ve personally experienced one other tornado that ravaged Atlanta more than 35 years ago. As a reporter for WSB-TV, I’ve covered the aftermath of many more. The most common description: “it sounded like a freight train”. The most common reaction: “we’ve lost everything, but thank God we’re still alive.” As I write this, I hear thunder, but no freight train so far. Thank God!!!
