Drought? What Drought.

Three years ago people in Georgia were praying for rain. Now they are praying for it to stop. In the last eight days the National Weather Service has recorded over 10 inches of rain in eight cities, with the high being 17.14 inches in Canton, GA. Last night our truck that delivers frozen foods and dairy was over an hour late. He had to deliver to the Fort Oglethorpe store before ours. The road he took was flooded out and he had to turn around and take an alternate route.

There are many roads closed around Atlanta today. If you are interested here is a full list. Amazingly people are ignoring road closed signs. This morning five people had to be rescued when one person ignored a sign and drove into a flooded road. Four people tried to rescue the first and they also had to be rescued. Currently seven people have drowned. The flood waters tore apart a trailer and sadly a two year old boy was drowned. His body was recovered a mile away. Four of the drowning victims were in their cars which were swept off the road.

The forecast is for more rain until Monday, when the sun is supposed to return. Hopefully this is accurate. I am ready for some sunshine.
Yesterday's answer was false. The Equator does not pass through any part of North America.
Today's question is Grade 4/World History.

Whom did the Normans defeat in 1066 at The Battle of Hastings?
I knew that one. 140-22.
