Poke My Eyes Out

Good Grief! The traffic was terrible this morning. 150 traffic lights out, streets closed from storm damage, falling glass in those areas and a bridge closing due to not passing recent inspections. Good Grief! So since I was just sitting there, why not snap some pics?

This is me waiting near a down tree near historic Oakland Cemetery. The cemetery lost some historic monuments to if I hear the news correctly.






This is my view waiting to move near Underground Atlanta. Like the crack in my windshield?





This is me waiting just before the World Congress Center, see the windows I circled....





This is me not moving in front of the World Congress Center. Check out the plywood covering missing windows. And one window they haven't gotten to yet.

Oh, Happy St. Paddy's Day! I need a green beer after this traffic. Too bad I don't drink.

I was wondering if you were affected by the storms/tornadoes. I'm so glad you're ok.

Wow, those are some crazy downed trees and the broken windows are scary--all that flying glass.

Oh, I wish I had checked in with you sooner!! We were so busy that I didn't pay attention to the news and then I heard about the tornados. I'm glad your family was okay... not a nice crack in your windshield though! Looks like you'll be dealing with it for a little while yet while everything is cleaned up. Try to be patient :)

You're too sweet! The crack is a different and long story. Let's just say we in Georgia aren't very skilled at remove ice from windshields :(
