The best way to deal with a tornado threat is to have a plan and practice how and where to take shelter.
I was born in a small Ohio town, not far from Xenia. Xenia was the small town wiped out by the 1974 Super Outbreak tornados. Growing up, I heard the story many times about our family who lived there and witnessed it. You would think that might cause me to fear tornados or severe weather, but I reacted quite the opposite.

We agreed to balance my obsession and fearlessness of storms with his storm-terror for the children's sake. After more than 20 years of living in East Cobb, I have taken cover maybe twice... until last Friday night. The tornado …

This popular Johnson Ferry Road establishment helps you escape the bustle of East Cobb.
The Café de Paris is a pleasant, relaxing find off the hustle and bustle of Johnson Ferry Road. Tucked away in the Woodlawn Commons Shopping Center, Café de Paris is attached to the European style home décor store C’est Moi.
