    Default F2 Tornado hit Atlanta...

    Big storm going over the trail. Hope everyone is ready for it. It came up suddenly.

    I thought the same thing when I saw this morning's radar at 9AM.

    These things were pretty bad down here in ATL.

    Has anyone heard from Two Speed? Looks like it hit close to his area and a bit west of Sly.

    About 14,000 in Atlanta area lost electricity so I'm betting cable and phone / DSL lines are down as well. I'll try to dig up Two-Speed's cell number.

    I'm a little southwest of TS, we never lost power here, but we did have a warning. Nor'easters on the coast of MA were fun (as long as you didn't have a house on the beach), these are scary!

    Added: I don't think tornado's touch down on mountains too often. Good for hikers

    As of 2:30pm there was more to come. The Radar looks real ugly down here right now.

    Looked like the major part of the storms dissipated from Johnson City down to the southernmost point of the AT. There are more trailing storms developing.

    First thing I did this morning after hearing of last night's storms and those developing today was to check the radar over the trail.
    Did that, then prayed for our sisters and brothers out there today, that they have an exhilarating day that finds them unscathed.

    Tornadoes fairly often hit Hall County/Gainesville, GA to the tune of major major killer storms. Somthing hits in the mountains as witnessed by huge areas of blow downs episodically.

    I suspect that today will get a lot of comments in our journals.

    My brother lives in midtown at the northern I75/I85 junction. His barber called him the morning of and that his appointment was cancelled because there was no barber shop to come to.

    How was it over at the Springer and trail?

    My son was traveling from Ft Benning/Columbus last night and stopped for a visit with a high school buddy who lives near the GA Dome. After dinner out he decided to skip the overnight stay there and left about 5 minutes before the storm hit to drive to Clarkesville on I-75/85.

    He had no idea what was happening behind him as he traveled north but the first thing he told me was that wind, rain and hail were awful in Atlanta as he was leaving. Then he saw the TV of where he just left and stood there with his mouth open!

    He tried calling his friend but no answer yet. I am sure he is fine just dealing with the conditions on the ground.

    Signed on today, to WB. More out of support and reassurance. But, I see I may log on more frequently. I hope all are safe on the trail and in the the Franklin NC area. My husband, Jim, may go by, Whistler??? He is 2 weeks into his trek to Katahdin. Last communication was Thursday. Beautiful hiking at that point. Now I await text or calls. Anyone in that area or heard anything. Thanks for any info.
