Testing 1, 2, 3

Breaking News GraphicThis is just a test of the 57channels emergency alert system. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Disregard that annoying tone. It’s not important. There are alleged storms and even alleged tornadoes sprouting up around the state, so stick here and we’ll keep you posted. Nothing here, though, just some scattered thunderstorms and lightning last night.





Rainy festival day

Inman Park Festival rainHere’s a sampling of some of the fun that was had at the Inman Park Festival (referenced in my last entry). The patron at left, like many others, improvised a solution to the wet weather. I know others had better experiences than I did. I was out in the rain. It was still fun, and there were lots of people out there making do. I saw a child being carried in a waterproof stroller-trailer thing with clear walls. Strangely amazing; no photo. Wares that I took home: beaded hippie bracelets, a tiki sign, a PEZ sign and some refrigerator magnets with quaint images on them. All for $30. Pictures forthcoming. This is almost a holiday for Atlanta’s arts community. Joyful, wonderful and totally MARTA-accessible.





Oh yeah, about the tornado

cleanup of water after tornadoShirley, you’ve heard about the tornado. The damage is slowly being cleaned up. The photo at left is from when they were wiping up all the water inside the atrium when it rained the Monday after the storm. Vacuums and everything were implemented. Coincidentally, this all happened on pi day.
