If Jesus was buried in Rincon, Georgia, his body would have washed out of his tomb today. The rain started yesterday evening and it hasn't stopped yet. I've lived up her for more than three years and this is the first time I've seen Chimney Road flooded. I drove through that gully-wash to get to the store today and I had to maintain wake speed to keep from kicking waves up into people's houses.
I saw families stacking sandbags around their front doors as the water was trying to make its way inside.
I live on top of a sandhill. "High Point Drive." All the water that falls here runs down to where those people live, and there has been a LOT of it over the past 24 hours. There's another example of "fragile, pristine nature" for you. Bejus! People worry about harming nature when they SHOULD be worrying about nature harming them.
Drive around Rincon, Georgia today. Take a good look at what's there. Then spew some more bullshit about "fragile ecosystems" at me. Asswipe. If you want to Save The Planet, go help some of those people stack sandbags around their front doors.
Otherwise, shut the fuck up.
