It's a Twister, Auntie Em!
Who would ever believe that a tornado would rip through the heart of downtown Atlanta? For those that haven't heard, that's exactly what happened this morning. I had three early morning catering jobs today and two of them were downtown. I stumbled across the storm damage within a couple of hours of it happening. I later saw the footage on the news, but it failed in comparison to the first hand account that I
witnessed. Saddest of all was the destruction of my former apartment complex. The Cotton Mill Lofts lost a couple of floors-- when I drove by I saw an empty gap where a few apartments use to be. Debris from the building and the apartments littered the roads. Down the street a couple of blocks, I saw a bicycle wrapped around the top of a telephone pole. I also saw buildings that had collapsed, burying the nearby cars in bricks. I couldn't drive a block without saying "Oh my God!" at least ten times.
The top three pictures will be of the Cotton Mill, and the following pictures will be of other damage a mile away in downtown Atlanta.
