Rough "Corner View"

 A tree fell down in my friends yard

Yesterday, was a rough day for the city of Atlanta and surrounding areas as we had a tropical storm pass through our city.  Soccer was canceled for my son Winston as we were on tornado watch.  He was not thrilled.  He lives for his practice each week.  My husband Frank couldn't go for his normal walk through the forest as the trail was flooded, but that didn't stop him.  He just switched his walk to the neighborhood.  Not much stops him as he says, "Germans aren't made of sugar."  We have seen this weather before and we will see it again.  So grateful that we are safe.

I hope the weather changes soon in your neck of the woods. Good thing the tree missed the house.

Haha, Germans aren't made of sugar! I couldn't agree more, Frank, and in a way this is kind of our special German rough humour to go out walking even if the storm flooded the usual walkway... ;-)
So glad you made it all safe through the storm!!
Liebe Grüße aus dem sturmfreien Deutschland! :-)

We are in Cobb and some areas were really hit hard, but (thankfully) we just had a lot of rain. Seems more like April, huh!?

Glad y'all didn't have much damage...and, now the weather is lovely. :)
