Sweet!

My last month in Minnesota, it rained 28 out of 30 days. It was long heavy rains like we are getting now. I went downtown St. Paul to the Science Museum and there is a cotton house from before the turn of the century down on a small island in the middle of the river. I looked out the window and all I could see was the chimney sticking out of the water. God bless the drought!

According to http://www.georgia-navigator.com/closures they have closed I-20 East between mile markers 20 and 30 due to flooding.

I'm going to go out on a limb and officially declare the drought over and the lake full pool. Remember you heard it here first folks.

NO.

This rain is just a drop in the bucket when you look at all of the yearly rain deficits added up.
Also, the areas east of I-85 (except for the Toccoa area) have not received the copious
amounts of rain others have gotten... the drought ain't busted.

Get out of here with your facts and logic, they have no place here. The drought is over! Leave your garden hoses running 24/7!
