Wet Summer in the South

Women with UmbrellaIn 2012 Georgia was in a drought. This year, the state has been deluged with rain. Atlanta is close to achieving 100% of its annual average rainfall and it is only the beginning of August. This has been a disastrous year in the South for farmers. Many predict they will lose up to 50% of their crops and that losses may be in the billions of dollars. Unfortunately, above average precipitation is predicted for the next two months so keep those umbrellas close at hand.

    Very nice – what are the chances for a blue and yellow umbrella against a bright red BG?

    • Thanks Walt. I did wait for the right moment.
