On Wednesday, when I landed in Atlanta from Cleveland and hopped in my rental car, the first thing that I heard on the radio was that there were multiple severe thunderstorms currently in the area. "Well, this is really going to F up rush hour traffic" was my first thought. Once I started to actually listen to the storm warnings, I realized - I have no IDEA where these things are! This became especially urgent when they changed from severe thunderstorms to tornados! The radio was listing off counties that were affected.... South X county, North Y county, etc. All the while I'm driving along, watching the clouds turn darker and darker and the rain getting harder and harder. I considered calling a guy I know in the area (and would have had the wind really started to pick up) but, like the stubborn man that I am, I decided to just keep on truckin'.
The thing that frustrates me the most is that I was really considering going for a quick run to try to limber up after the long flight. So, I went to the gym walked right past the treadmills and over to the weights to try to work on my girlish figure. Nothing makes me feel more like a man than doing pull ups. I'm not sure why - but they are the best!
Of course, since I am typing this all is well. The storms I found out later were north and south of me but not directly in my path. I did take a picture from the gym parking lot. Both are a bit ominous, but I think one may show a little suspicious looking cloud.
