All for now. We are still getting lots and lots of rain daily and there seems no end in sight. Septic systems are overflowing everywhere due to the high water table. We have had a drought for the past 7 years and it looks like it is over. Lillie and I are growing gills and webbed hands and feet. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or questions.
Best Regards To All.......Charles
