We're safe and sound, fyi. We rode out the storms (which came in about four waves, and an ocean's worth of rain) with home brews and "American Idol" (can't believe I'm admitting that to the e-world). Photos today of destruction in the Chattanooga area, and of course throughout the South, make us feel pretty lucky. It's guaranteed that if a tornado struck our little cabin, it'd be a pile of Pick-Up Sticks. But somehow I think our mountain serves as a buffer against the storm's strength. Despite reports of 80-mph winds in the area, we never saw anything more than 25 or so. The only tragedy for us? We discovered the sunroof in my "new"car leaks.
