My interesting weekend in Raleigh, NC for BM Wedding

One of my best girlfriends, who is also one of my BM got married this weekend, in Raleigh, NC where she lives. We flew down late Friday night, and woke up on Saturday morning to the news telling us of the tornado warnings for our are (we were in the center of downtown Raleigh). My girlfriend stayed very calm ( not sure if I would have been). The wedding was scheduled for 6 pm, and at 3:30 ish, the skies went very very dark and the wind and rain were crazy. We could see the huge clouds roll right over top of the hotel we were in. We left for the ceremony at 4:45 and drove the 30 mins to Chapel Hill. The rain had stopped and everything seemed to have moved northeast. Fortunately everyone arrived safely to the church, although they had to start over an hour late.


I am very grateful we all were safe, but my heart goes out to those who werent as lucky as us, and lost thier lives, and those who lost thier homes. It was a scary situation
