    I have lived in N Ga for 16 years but today I was scared because the storm in Ga that killed a few folks today and did lots of damage in N Ga was barreling down 2miles from our home. We were in the direct path of two tornadoes. When the eye of the storm was 2 miles away it had to cross a lake to hit our area. When it hit that lake it lessened in strength and veered to the North of our home. We had taken our dogs the guns and what valuables we could store in the basement under our stairs,. We prayed for Gods protection and he really blessed our entire area. In many places very close to our home, they had 3 inch hail and high winds. We escaped thank God. So to top it all off I won our little pot match this am before all this started. The weather kept most of the shooters at home but early am it was beautiful at the club. Shot a 93 but did it the hard way. First 25 missed 5 shooting my O/U. Worst score in 4 years. Got pissed pulled out my mod 12 and hit 73 out of the next 75. So it was a very exciting day and very thankful for all our blessings. BTW first prize was a big 4.00 bucks. I LOVED IT

    Glad you're OK! My parents were caught once in Fl. during a Tornado. They say it's a sound you never forget. I'd do what Big Jack suggested and frame it!
