Typical Woman

Fay can’t make up her mind where she wants to go.

Instead of moving up the middle of the Florida peninsula and into Georgia, Fay is forecast to move into the Atlantic near Cape Canaveral. A high-pressure ridge is forecast to steer the storm away from the Florida coast where it could churn for about 24 hours before turning west to the Georgia-Florida state line sometime early Friday morning.

I’ve been waiting around all week for her to show up. We’ll all wait some more.

    Fay was the first chance we’ve had to put a severe dent in the North Georgia drought. Had she taken the path that was forecast a few days ago, there could have been 8-10 inches of rain…now it appears that there will be none.

    I’ll venture a guess that the priorities at the Gold Dome next winter will depend on whether a tropical storm/hurricane reaches Georgia this summer/fall. If not, then water will be the number one topic.

    I have some doubts about the accuracy of the word “drought” for what North Georgia is going through. Lanier and Allatoona are down, but then the Corps drains them. What are the levels like on private lakes in North Georgia? You never hear about them. I live in a private lake outside Canton, and the lake is full. It has been, and the worst it was last year was about 3 feet below normal pool. That only lasted about 2 months.

    I hope if the hurricane’s leftovers can only hit 1/2 of Georgia, I hope they hit the half that is south of Macon. After all, the majority of Georgia’s gross domestic product (that which stays and multiplies the economy in Georgia) is from agriculture and timber. Farmers down there need that rain more than we do, and Georgia would be the better for it, IMHO.

    Come on Fay, take a slow, westerly path through South Georgia.
