Scary, but I’m not sure that “rare” is an accurate description anymore. :cry: That headline reminded me of footage from France earlier this year, in which roof tiles were riddled with holes. My first thought was that they were lucky no one was hit, because skin is much softer than those tiles.

Flooding in NW GA:

Just checked, and nothing on MTG’s facebook or twitter, while her Democratic opponent issued a statement about the flooding. Not surprising, since it’s not like she’s from that part of GA anyway, so why should she care about the people there, except how they can send her money… :roll_eyes:
