The Sky is Falling!

It's raining in Georgia.
I haven't seen rain in months.
Woke up at 4:00 am not knowing what I was hearing on my roof.

Huzzah!

We're about a half a step off of having a Southern dust bowl.
The pond is down by 3 feet.
Our neighbors' well has run dry (drilled well 325 feet deep, mine is 400).
We could use this for a month.

It was like that hear prior to hurricane season. Then Faye came, and the lake near my house went from bone-dry to completely full. Huzzah!

There is something I find very soothing about rain. We had it all over last weekend and it looks like we're getting some this weekend as well.

Very glad to see rain. Been over a month since we had any, and what we got back then wasn't much. Pretty sure we are still in a level 4 drought. Next level is the sahara.

That was last week, this is the precursor for the frogs, and I'm not sure if next week is blood or boils.

If your referring to the 7 seals, one of them is earthquakes. Not too many of those in this neck of the woods.

don't recall that one. I remember the 4.5 in Ft. Payne AL a few years ago. I woke up about 5 minutes before it hit, and so did my wife. She asked what it was and went right back to sleep. I was like WTF? This is GA, we don't have earthquakes here. Come to find out, there's like 4 major fault lines running through the state.
