Back in Georgia


Like usual, all the reports of flooding and disaster seem to be greatly exaggerated. We listened to the news all the way through Alabama and they were talking about swollen rivers, flash floods, etc., and we had already been anticipating high water from all the national news we watched along the way. However, we never saw a single sign of flooding anywhere on our travels. In Kentucky, the rivers seemed to be muddy and high but the rivers down here all tend to be muddy looking, so nothing very unusual looking compared to past trips. Since we live on a dirt road, we were expecting it to be impassable or at least pretty muddy. We were surprised to find it freshly graded and completely dry.

The lake is full but not overflowing, and the weeds are as high as an elephant's eye. I will be pulling weeds for a while! Already finished with two of the dozen flower beds though, and they look so pretty when tamed.
