Hurricane Irma slammed into Atlanta as a tropical storm on Monday.
Gusts up to 65mph snapped trees in half, tore pieces off buuldings and knocked out power to large swaths of the metro area. Schools were closed Monday and Tuesday and many businesses preemptively closed.
By the afternoon of Monday the governor ordered everyone off the road.
Three people were killed and what little gasoline remains is 89 octane. Between Floridians flooding the city to escape Irma and panic buying. Bottled water flew off shelves. Many grocery stores and homes lost their fridge and freezer contents.
We're on day 3 of no power out our way. It is extraordinarily peaceful for now.
But we're alive. And okay.
