If you are familiar with That Catholic Show you might recognize one of those pictures from Black Shoals Park, where the water episode was filmed. There was a severe drought at the time of that filming, so you probably won’t actually recognize this at all, but I assure you it’s the same place. We took these pictures from the covered bridge, and to our amazement and delight, a sailboat blew into the scene! In all the years we’ve been going to that bridge I’ve never seen the water deep enough to support a boat that wasn’t built for the shallow waters, let alone a sailboat.

canoe, anyone?

In case you live in a vacuum and haven’t noticed, Georgia is having a wee bit of trouble with TOO MUCH RAIN! First, there’s a drought and we’re fighting with Tennessee and Alabama and condemning lots of little fish in North Florida to their untimely deaths. Now, we have tragedy of the human kind, including a goofball who thought it’d be a good idea to go swimming in a river losing its banks (that’s what the Darwin Awards are for).

I need to fly outta here in the morning to get to Charlotte, NC before 10:30 AM. I’m still going to have a drive to my destination. Things are not looking good around here.

This is the road I would have taken out of the neighborhood. That lake is the river run-off. It hasn’t even crested yet. I’m thinking I’m going to miss North Carolina in the early fall.
