Thought I would share a few photos as we have had family and friends asking about the big flood. The Satilla River which is about a 1/2 to 3/4 mile from our home has been rising for days now. Flood stage is 13 feet and this morning it was at 22.7 feet and this is down from last night's 23.4' when Steve and I drove down the highway to check it out. Vehicles were lined up along the sides of the road with people taking pictures. The highway department had the signs up and ready to detour traffic, but thankfully within a few feet of reaching the major highway that runs from state-line to state-line the water started falling. We are about a 1/4 of a mile from the water's edge, but you can't see it unless you go down one of the little side roads that lead to the river. If it had reached 23.7 it would have reached a 100 year old record! Almost history in the making!
Sorry for a few typo's on the photos. Was in a hurry and didn't catch them until I had them on here. Oh and it looks the same on our side as it does in the first photo.
It has been busy here...lots going on. Several canvases in the works, my friend KC Willis of Lipstick Ranch invited me to join her upcoming workshop and I am excited about it. Did some fabric collages in my earlier days and have some ideas floating around in my head. Can't wait to get started. Plus some art friends that I have known for years are taking the class too so that will make it super fun to be working together. Pizza should be here any moment, yes even out in the middle of nowhere we can get pizza.
