Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It's looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it's supposed to get to 38 and the day after it's supposed to be sunny and 51, I'm not really worried about it.
I can't really say the same for the rest of GA. They seem like they're going freaking nuts. But waddyagonnado?
I'm just looking forward to tomorrow when I'm getting my next tattoo. *squee with excitement!*

Before then, though, we need to get you some bite-sized stories. So let's go ahead and do that.
