I don't know what you have in mind, but there is no desert. The area lakes still can use a little recharging and the waterfalls and streams in the mountains are not up to snuff. There is no shortage of water although lawn watering may still be limited.(not sure about that) The outdoor fire ban has been lifted in most if not all areas and it has rained aprox. 7 inches in the last 3 weeks. Much needed and much thanked. Everything looks good but the water tables are still somewhat low. We still need above average rainfall this winter to get us out of the drought. The area included in the drought is much smaller than this time last year. It currently covers most of North Ga. Some of western South Carolina and some of Southwestern North Carolina. I live in Ellijay, Aprox 60 miles NW of Cumming and some of the springs are still not running and some of the waterfalls look kind of pitifull, but it sure is still beautiful here in the mountains.

lake lanier is up two feet here in the past two weeks but it was about at it's lowest level ever prior to the recent filling rains. no one's thirsty, but they aren't watering the lawn either.
