The last that I heard was that Lake Allatoona is at it's normal winter level right now. I haven't heard if they have stopped pumping water to Florida for the mussels that are supposedly dieing down there. They can shrivel and and burn for all I care. The water in GA needs to stay in GA! Luckily we have gotten plenty of water in the last couple of weeks. I have already started cutting a few of the weedy properties that have lots of henbit and onions growing like wildfire.

Pikes Family Nursery is being auctioned off today after 50 years in business. I wonder how many other nurseries will find themselves in a bind. I have no idea how the irrigation guys are surviving. Even with the let up on water restrictions, it's watering by hose and not irrigation unless it's a new install and that is for a limited time.
