Power's out, MARTA's out, weather sucks

Yeah, it might not be raining this very moment, but across Atlanta, people are dealing with the aftershocks of recent storm activity. And it sucks.

Grady High School is among the more than 230,000 Georgia Power customers in metro Atlanta without power. Downtown Decatur's electricity just returned. MARTA was out of service for several hours. And one person was killed when a tree fell. Here at CL the lights flickered on and off for most of the morning, causing great panic and confusion amongst the hardworking proletariat as we slave away at our information terminals.

And the AJC says more rain could be on the way:

Up to 2 inches of rain could fall across the area through the day Monday, with hail possible, forecasters said.

“There will likely be two rounds of thunderstorms,” the Weather Service said in a statement. “One this morning as a squall line moves through central Georgia and another this afternoon and tonight as the cold front approaches.”

The chance of rain continues into Tuesday, with dry weather forecast for the back half of the week.

Be careful on the roads and watch out if you're working under or around trees.
