More from the South Georgia hinterlands.
Spoke to a farmer friend this morning and even though this part of the state is still not as bad as the Atlanta region, it's still bad. Six months ago, while certain politicians under the Gold Dome were fiddling while Atlanta parched, the farmers of South Georgia were planting cotton and peanuts in dry fields, rolling the dice that rain would come. Fortunately for them, it did. Just enough for survival and not much else.
My friend told stories of folks extending their deep wells further because the aquifer is going lower and lower. That would be the Floridan Aquifer which is supposed to be practically indestructible. The problem is it is recharged by rainfall, both here and in the uplands of North Georgia, and ain't nobody getting any right now.
Bottom line is the opinion down here seems to be, don't come calling Atlanta, cause we ain't got none either.
