Stormy Weather


posted on 28th of august, 2008

How's the weather where you live? I had a great summer until the dry weather and heat hit for 3 weeks in August and then guess what..........





It wasn't as bad as Ivan but 13 inches in a 24 hour period is a lot for the dams to handle. The lakes south of us really needed the rain so they will get all we can give to them! Our lakes generate power and we supply the Savannah River Basin which wasn't as dry as the other side of the state but some were in need. Landscapes are hurting and businesses that depend on such things are slow. The crops had a shorter season unless they could be irrigated, however, it's still not as good as rain. Now, another storm is on the way and I hope all of you in the path will take precautions. DO NOT take your camera to the roof and try for the shot of a lifetime or your lifetime may be shot!

I'm not excited about being able to get more unique photos and we do still need more rain for the lakes and waterfalls, but if it would just spread out so as to do good with no damage is my hope. Good Luck to all in the path!

Never mind-I just saw the forecast--I know the hurricane is headed straight for the area where Richard lives!

wow, amazing shots, but very sorry for the people whose homes and land has been ruined, i hope the rain will cease long enough for people to be able to get back on with life and rebuild what they need to. All the best to them all
