Re: New Year


It's brilliantly sunny, cold, extremely windy and very, very dry. Last I looked the temp was up to 19. Bah! Humbug!

There was a little snow on some leaves when I went out to carry water to the chickens. Only a smidge, though- as if someone had tossed a bit of confectioner's sugar on a pound cake.

Atlanta finished up the year with 31.85 inches, the driest year was 1954 with 34.80. We didn't get that much (the official rain gauge is at the airport, on the southwest side of town. ).As near as I can tell, we got about 24 inches for the year. A nearby golf course reporting station indicates that they received 24.29. I don't have an automated station, but I think I wrote down all of the rain amounts.

For those of you for whom this amount of rain is high, consider our temps (range of minus 7 to 105 this year, AHS heat zone 7-8) and our normal rainfall is about 50 inches.

Hope you get some more rain and maybe some snow to fill up those lakes. We
are still very low and ended the year with over a foot deficit.

We had 2.3 inches over the last couple of days. Lake Lanier, our major
reservoir, actually gained a couple of inches of water, with more
expected
as streams feed it.

Yesterday started foggy, but turned beautiful and about 54.  Today is
sunny
but with a chill wind, and it's supposed to be down in the teens tomorrow.
