I don't know how many of you are aware of the fact that we have had major rains and flooding in Georgia this past week. Some areas got as much as 20" in just a few days. After years of drought, this was quite a change.
It was so bad that schools were closed, interstates were impassable and closed, roads had huge sinkholes, water rose to second story levels in some homes, and 100 year old trees were toppling because of loose roots. Six Flags over Georgia was underwater (the roller coaster looked like the Loch Ness monster!) The governor has declared a state of emergency and asked the president for aid.
Here are a few pics for you. You can see more at
