North Ga rains

This was taken yesterday  afternoon. We got about 6 inches of rain in 2 hours or so. This  is a lot of rain in one shot but not too out of the ordinary. It is very typical to get our rains in 3-5 inch down pours every couple few days all through the summer. We are in the Katuah biosphere which is why we have such crazy rain amounts and this is one of only three areas in the USA like it.

After a quick walk through the gardens this morning most seem okay. We didn't walk down to check the tobacco, I just didn't have the mind set to walk down and see a mess. Manthing went to check the drive way a bit ago and that is going to take some work and some $$$$ to fix again. Living in the middle of nowhere is wonderful but the driveway upkeep costs are phenomenal.Wouldn't ya know its on a day we are expecting company too which is like a one time of year event ...


  1. I will not complain about our Rainy Oregon Spring again!
    Were you contemplating an ark at anytime?

  2. During part of yesterday's North GA rain-I was trying to sell folkart : ) Luckily it wasn't quite as bad where I was at as your video!

    Love the grape post below-I've never heard of them-but I'm going to be on the look out for them in my area.
