Remember back in 1997...the big topic of conversation at that time was the Hale-Bopp comet. You might wonder why I'm talking about that now. Well...it just came to mind when I heard that Jeremy's truck, which he was driving home from a fishing tournament, and the boat he was hauling, were bopped with hail on Saturday. (See where I'm going with this?) Also "bopped" were Jessica's car and the cars of all the employees and patrons at the Blue Willow when a particularly nasty thunderstorm cell went through there at about 5:00 on Saturday afternoon. We were under a tornado warning on Friday night about 10:00 from the same cell that badly damaged a 6-mile swath of downtown Atlanta. And then all day Saturday there were other strong to severe storms that moved across our area...and just to the north of us...from early in the morning (we were awakened pre-dawn by a loud and flashy storm) until about 6:00 or 7:00 in the evening. We were very lucky. We had only one tree come down and it just missed Jerry's shed by a foot or two. So...while we were "hail bopped" this weekend, we are all fine.
