say some prayers

This past week, Wine Husband...(I call him that because he works in the Wine Industry...and is considered somewhat of a guru)...was in Atlanta. He was putting on a special event at the Georgia World Congress Center for the Atlanta Home Show. It was a big deal because it was the 1st time the Home Show offered wine tastings. After a night of really bad dreams, I was woken up to the telephone before 8am. You know when that happens, it's probably not good news. It was Wine Husband. He wanted to let me know before I saw the news that downtown Atlanta had been hit by a tornado. He was fine, and so was the rest of our family there. They all live within minutes of downtown. But, the Atlanta Home Show had been canceled because the GA World Congress Center had been damaged. This is a photo of inside the Congress Center. The worst part of it is that they are expecting more storms later today. I was hoping that he would tell me that he was coming home early. But, he's not. He is staying to help out with the clean up. So, say some prayers for everyone effected by this disaster. And hope that this afternoon storms are a lot less eventful. Stay safe and come home soon.

UPDATE: 4:30pm Sat. - I just talked to him. The sirens have gone off again and he's in the basement. Scary. I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE2: 5:45pm Sat. - The sirens have been turned off, and everything appears to be okay. He said that they are expecting this the rest of the evening. Meanwhile, we had our own little wind problem here. The gusts took out my huge canvas umbrella in the courtyard at the studio, and shattered my glass table into a million pieces. Bummer. I won't be posting again today because I don't have a computer at home.

UPDATE #: 7:00pm Sun. - All is well and every one is all safe. Thank goodness........
