We have been dealing with the warm, breezy, dry side of Tropical Storm Fay for over a week. Tropical skies aren't the norm in North Georgia, so the change in weather has been interesting.
I consider myself somewhat of a "Weather Freak". I challenge anyone, anytime to a game of "Name that Meteorologist" on the Weather Channel.
We've been experiencing a drought of historic proportions in North Georgia and there is nothing interesting or exciting about a drought. It has been heart-breaking to see our beautiful Lake Lanier and Lake Hartwell evaporate before our very eyes. I'm not sure how many years it will take the agricultural economy to recover.
This storm looks like our best chance for any appreciable rain. I hope the weather forecasters are correct when they say we should get some relief from Fay soon.
