Report from Atlanta on Mulat Folks

Hi Vic, Sorry, was glued to the tv yesterday and did not check email. Everything is fine with Dot and Jack. They assessed the damage yesterday evening and had downed trees and some eaves out. Could not tell about the shingles on the new roof. We spoke to them right after the eye went over and they were fine. They were at the round Christian Church on Avalon Blvd. I am sure they are at the house this morning. They had no power at the church and I am sure they have none at the house. Tim is supposed to talk to them this morning. Will let you know if I hear more. Laura.
PS FROM VIC: The reports now coming in more on damage to surrounding area. The NW quadrant as usual gave severe damage especially at gulf waterfront properties all the way to Appalachicola (the bump on the panhandle). However inland strikes of the eye wall and close winds took out some great old trees and barns and altered the landscape as did Ivan 10 months ago. See Yahoo News for more description and photos. The little town of Flomaton at the corner of FL and AL has taken the eye of both Ivan and Dennis! As bad as Dennis was.. most people are very glad it was not as bad as Ivan. Winston N. has been muttering under his breath at every downed tree at the farm in Chumuckla. I think he already has enough firewood for a lifetime.
