We've had 2-3 days so far of effects from Tropical Storm Fay--windy, cloudy, and occasionally very light rain. But given our continuing drought, I could (cautiously) wish that we'd had a little more--if only Fay had tracked to sweep more rain bands across Atlanta, and the watershed north of Atlanta.

And while I don't really want severe flooding, the thought of a storm perching over the upper Chattahoochee River basin and dumping 20 inches of rain has some real attractions...

Well (putting on my hydrologist hat), water running into Lanier would be pretty effective. Not that raising the water table back to 'normal' and thus increasing base flow isn't a good thing, but we need significant inflow from major rains. I suspect the clay base of Lanier is sufficient to retain water from storm inflow and not lose major amounts to the surrounding ground-water system.

Oh look, it's raining again! Three cheers for Fay!

Ooh, thank you. I'd much rather have facts to think with, and that corrects my assumption.

This morning, I had a lovely rain for a good while.
