You guys are great

Thank you for all your comments yesterday. I feel better now.


I went downtown yesterday to take a time management class. The location was right across the street from the Westin Peachtree Plaza which took a direct hit from the tornado a few weeks ago. I had not seen the damage up close... it's breathtaking.

I had to walk under scaffolds and listen to construction all day. There is still glass laying in the gutters and on the street. I'm amazed that more buildings were not damaged. I didn't have a camera so I couldn't take pictures. My cellphone camera just couldn't catch the magnitude of it.

I know. I know. Never leave home without a camera!

But here is a picture of it before damage...

I want to stay there some day. I want to dine in the revolving restaurant on the top floor. All I've ever done is ride the elevators that are outside the building and encased in glass. For a girl afraid of heights, that was a memorable moment.

I'll be glad when she is back to her old self.

I stayed there in Oct 2006! It is gorgeous. I hope they put it right quickly!

Ditto Coffeepot.
Big, Beautiful ATL. I've been downtown a few times (around Coke), but the travel restrictions + the police are horrible for me.
ATL is still one of my favorite cities to see at night, from a distance that the rules require.

That brings back memories. It's been years since I've been to Atlanta but had the extreme pleasure of staying there on one of my visits. :)
