Weather gussers here say anywhere from 6 to 16 inches of rain next few days. We are already wet due to afternoon rains almost everyday last two weeks, all the creeks are full and ponds are over flowing. This could get intresting, back in 94 when (can't rember the name) hurricane hit Florida we got 24 inches of rain in 24 hours. It pretty much devestated s. Ga with flooding.
I hope this storm keeps dropping in intensty
and maybe we will just have heavy rain to deal with. The only other problems expected is the guessers are predicting 1 to 3 tornadoas spawing out of this storm....
S. Ga is full of Floridians, not a motel room to be had south of Atlanta and here in my area supplies are starting to run short, mostly gasoline.
I think a prayer is in order for all left in Flordia and maybe a small one for us here in Georgia...


will check back when I have different news.

Alberto was first detected as a tropical wave that moved off the African coast on 18 June. The wave moved into the western Caribbean by late June and formed into a tropical depression near the western tip of Cuba on June 30. The cyclone moved northwest through July 1 as it became a tropical storm, then it turned northward. This motion continued until the cyclone made landfall in the western Florida Panhandle on the 4th. Alberto then moved north-northeastward into western Georgia, where it did a loop on the 5th and 6th. The cyclone finally dissipated over central Alabama on July 7.

Alberto's winds and tides produced only minor damage at the coast, but the excessive rains that fell in Georgia, Alabama, and western Florida were another story. Amounts exceeded 10 inches in many locations, with the maximum being the 27.61 inch storm total at Americus, GA (including 21 inches in 24 hours). Severe flooding resulted over large portions of southern Georgia, western Alabama, and the western Florida Panhandle. The floods were responsible for 30 deaths and $500 million in damage.

Best of luck to ya, we're sure sendin the prayers on south for all of you in harms way.
Predicted path is supposed to bring it west of us, over Pittsburg way, by then it should be about blown out.
Be safe and keep in touch.
