Just a little something I wrote yesterday.  Maybe it will redirect your fear to hope on this Day ----      Happy Easter Easter Short Story by Ricky Aldridge He is not here----He is Risen.M

Okay, To avoid over worrying myself, I am gonna leave for a bit. Don't worry, have good ways to get alerts. Goodbye for now everyone, stay safe.

It seems like Dawson County is clear now, so I am heading to bed, goodnight everyone.

Ugh I’m so scared. And I know I won’t be able to sleep and then I’ll have to be up at 7:30 to digitally teach 🙄

The kids can wait... I mean how much time are you spending online with them every day? If you don't want to get up in the AM, the kids and parents won't either. And 7:30????????????????

After this current watch is done at 11, is there a risk of another one being created, or the time being extend to a later time?

Also, it's weird, I am super calm right now. I thought I would be freaking out, but I'm not.

I think because the environment is not quite right for a tornado. The tornado that was headed toward Blue Ridge fizzled as well.

Ok. Our radio went off for Rabun so I was surprised we weren’t included as well. Do you think the environment not being quite right is just for right now? The rounds of storms in Alabama look terrifying.

Environment still highly favorable for supercells and tornadoes this evening over all of north GA. Storm in Dalton has crossed the warm front as analyzed by SPC mesoanalysis SBCAPE so hopeful that it will continue to weaken. If any cells can develop south of the main band in AL they should tap rich moisture and instability (for instance the showers to the SW of Talladega), those will need to be watched closesly.
