Drought Getting a Little Better in North Georgia
The winter rains have been a welcomed sight for the people in North Georgia and most of the Southern States. We have been in a severe drought and you have to go back to the 1950’s to see one as bad as the one we have now. Our rain still isn’t falling in buckets yet and we really need some gulley washers to help the watertable, streams, creeks, rivers and lakes in our area.
The bad part of our drought is forecasted for this fall. We are expecting below normal rainfall for the spring and summer months. The late summer and early fall has always been pretty dry for us. Sometimes hurricanes will stir up in the Gulf during the fall time and if they track through Alabama and push over to the east, we usually can depend on some tropical moisture for fall rains. So as bad as it seems to be rooting for a hurricane to come ashore along the panhandle of Florida; it is something we could greatly benefit from. Gas prices might soar, but we expect that to hit this summer before our water becomes a crisis in the fall. The more days that pass with no rainfall in our area, is the more likelihood of people having to do without water. It’s a very real scene for our area and the only thing that will help now, is more rain!Click here for reuse options!
