Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good.

I live to the west of Atlanta, it's been raining hard here for about three days now, the sheriff's dept made a swift water rescue of some kids on top of an SUV right down the road last night. Spaghetti Junction, a major interstate interchange has been closed.



Sweetwater Creek, which is only a mile or so away from me is going to hit a 100 year high water high tonight or tomorrow, the little creek which runs on the back of our property you can normally just step over looks like a raging river.

Here's what Sweetwater Creek normally looks like, all this is underwater now..
