Last tornado pics (Vestavia) plus Athens Twilight prep

April 30, 2011 at 11:01 am Leave a comment

We drove over to Athens yesterday for the Twilight crit tonight. Before we left, I biked a different route through Vestavia on my way back from school. So many people there are still without power, and the pic below is one of the reasons why. It does confirm though the general direction I think the storm traveled as these power lines are snapped in a direct line back from Dolly Ridge (see updated map)

After I got home, we loaded up the car and drove to Athens, Georgia seeing more trees down at several spots along I-20. I rode over to registration and hung out for a bit. The computrainer grid qualifiers had just finished. Then on my way biking back to Winterville where we are staying with friends, I rode through the UGA campus and took a couple pictures of the stadium. All of these pictures are in the gallery below.
