Looks like the Atlanta area is going to get this one, too.
My better half just told me that there is a tornado warning out in Stone Mountain… which I’m about to have to drive through in a bit…
Stay safe! I stayed at work, which means a later arrival home, but a safer building.
Damn. I do appreciate our mountains around us here!
Stay safe. If the sky turns green, get to cover.
The mountains help, but y’all have your share. My parents watched the Rocky Mount tornado in 2019, and there was the one that tore down I81 in 2011 down by Abingdon.
Main difference is we don’t get the long run tornadoes. They can only be on the ground a short while before the get broken up. That’s how I know about the green skies! We’ve seen a couple. But nothing like you flatlanders get.
True. And those green skies give you a soul-churning, lizard-brain “danger, danger, danger” feeling that you cannot forget.
OMG, so much of this!!!
I cannot tell you how many parents saw an ad and now want their kid of the latest and greatest. In my field this is usually mental health drugs, but in adult medicine it is pretty much everything.
It is nice to actually have data to argue from, instead of just rolling my eyes.
It’s almost like applying capitalism to healthcare is a bad idea somehow.
Yep. My wife hears this all the time. She cannot prescribe, but she recommends to a psychiatrist who almost always goes with what she recommends. The number of people who come in and say “my kid needs to be on Vivance!” To which my wife says “that’s for ADHD, you kid isn’t exhibiting those symptoms.” And the parents get mad and leave.
Ever since their development people have insisted on antibiotics for everything, whether or not they are going to be useful. I routinely get ads for drugs that consist of nothing more than a group of smiling people saying “I was so happy to start using drug!” They never even say what the drug is supposed to treat.
