Feast or Famine, Drought or Flood

We've been under drought conditions for many months with the deficit in the Atlanta area being around 11" (if I remember correctly). It felt this morning like we were going to make it all up in just a few hours! Our nice, peaceful little creek turned not so nice and peaceful this morning. It's hard to get the scale from the above photo but trust me, that is a serious amount of water you're seeing. There is normally a nice, scenic little cascade in that spot that is beautiful and melodic, great for sitting in the swing and watching. Not today. I know, in the grand scheme of floods this isn't even a blip on the radar. But it's unusual for us and since it doesn't threaten the house in the least, it's fun to watch.

Looks like chocolate milk.

Got a few sprinkles here today and now the wind is rockin' the trailer.
