Like a sponge, the front edge of an advancing cold front soaked moist air from the Gulf of Mexico and spread it in a heavy north-south flood through the southeastern United States. Thunder and lightning rumbled and rolled and flashed through hills and hollows of the Blue Wall from one end of the day to the other, and oh, the rain did fall!  Rivers surged into floodplains, cars floated in parking lots, trees fell, transformers blew, and roads blew out too. Half of Jocassee Lake Road has fallen away, and repairs are likely to be going on well into the month of May. In other words, a good ol’ spring storm descended upon us, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a long time. The power and majesty of the Almighty was in fine form on this Good Friday. ~K
