It has been raining here, steadily, from last Friday night through yesterday. In five days, over a foot and half of rain fell on the NE Georgia counties. We all have flooding. People who built on the rivers and the creeks have learned the folly of that , a lot of roads are washed out. Bridges, too. Most of our bridges on back roads , are just wooden planks laid across creeks. Just up across the North Carolina line, they had mud slides. Power was on and off the whole time, never for long. I finally just quit resetting the equipment that wasn't on battery backups. All of the important stuff is anyway.
When the rain is that heavy, you can forget about satellite radio and television. It's already difficult to get those into our little area perched on the mountain, especially in summer. That kind of weather makes it impossible. May was so wet that the forest has literally turned into a rain forest. It's so thick you can't see into it, and coming up the mountain we are just driving through a green tunnel in the woods.
I have some errands to run today, and we are going up to North Carolina for a bit. When I get back, I'll update this post. Just wanted to let people know we are in pretty good shape, given the weather over the last week or so.
Survivor's Edge Special:
I know the news stands in town have never carried all the survivalist publications , so I check the publishers pages for new issues I might have missed. In the last month, gun and survival magazines have virtually disappeared from the news stands , so I have been ordering some of the magazines on line.
The latest to show up for sale, but not in our area, is a Survivor's Edge Special. I ordered it direct from the publisher but haven't gotten my copy yet. It looks interesting, though.
