RAIN OVER LAKE JOCASSEE
Rain is the news from Lake Jocassee this week. Glorious, copious, endless rain. For two days! And with it strong winds, which we could have done without, but major fall fronts do not charge through benignly. It rained over 6 inches in the Devils Fork area, and that or more in the surrounding mountains. The Jocassee Gorges contains roughly 150 thousand acres, and if 6 or more inches rained over that entire area, as it surely did, then you can be sure the rest of the Savannah River watershed is smiling widely now. Lake Jocassee came up over two feet in two days. Simply amazing.
JOCASSEE COLOR REPORT. Tis the season. As the regions above us peak and decline, Jocassee comes into her own. The first two weeks of November are predictably the most color-filled weeks of fall. ~B
