We just had a similar squal line go through downtown Atlanta, hail and all. We get a little nervous in this part of town with that kind of weather, after all, we did have a tornado tear up downtown last year.

When you're on the 33rd floor of an office tower and hail from the storm is hitting your side of the building at 80mph, it sounds like buckshot peppering the building. Thunder sounds different too and it is a little weird to be looking out a window and see lightening strike below the level you are on.

About half the windows in our suite leaked at the seams. The maintenence manager said he had leaks on almost every floor.

As for your poor flowers, I don't know if the yellow marigolds(?) will come back, but the mixed group looks like it should in a day or two, it seems to have more bendy stems that should bounce back.

Wendy, they were large marigolds, and I'm not particularly optimistic.

The geraniums are the plant equivalent of cockroaches, though. I think they'll bounce back.

Alas poor flowers ... those marigolds look like they've turned into soup. :(

If the temperatures haven't gone below freezing, you may be ok.

Though I would have poured tepid water in the bins to melt the ice.
