Default Two Docks Destroyed At Aqualand Marina, Lake Lanier, Ga.

Two docks were heavely damaged early this morning as the same storm front moved through here that went through Tn. yesterday. One dock had the roof completely flattened and crushed some boats. Hopely I can find a batery for my camera in the morning and get some pix for ya'll.

Robert, Sorry to hear about this. It seems like there's more and more of this kind of $hit happening all the time.
Hope you and Demi are fine. Be safe and take care.

Frank and Lois.

We were lucky. Sitting on top of the hill and looking out into the tree tops you always worry about these storms. I have never seen so much lightning; it was just like a constant strobe flashing for about 20-30 minutes. We had a very small about of hail but no damage. The dog actually woke us and we spent the next hour in the basement waiting for everything to pass.
