Southeastern drought


Adrian in Lake Hartwell

Seeing one of the region's lakes in person rather than TV really makes a strong impression. Yesterday Amy and I visited Hartwell Lake at its upper reaches near Toccoa. I could walk dozens of yards into the lake away from its usual shoreline. Here I am on a tree stump that should be submerged. I bet you could put on wading boots and walk across to South Carolina.
