A River Runs Through It

When we first arrived in Alabama two years ago, the state was in the middle of an extended drought.  According to the US Drought Monitor, the drought in our area has been over officially for quite some time now.  After the rain we been having this month, we have decided to endorse the US Drought Monitor assessment.  The little trickle of a stream behind our house has been busting at it's seams the last while.  We considered going rafting in the stream, but there have been too many stories in the news lately about folks being sucked into drainage pipes.  We decided that as much fun as rafting in the stream would be, it would be awfully embarrassing to end up as a statistic on the nightly news.  I guess we really haven't hit the 40 days and 40 nights stage yet, but it is starting to feel like that.
