Water is higher than normal, for this time of year. Some water still in marsh. Maybe they won't pull the plug before Saturday. :cheers:

So hard to believe that all travel north of Valdosta is about to be closed on I-75 and YET, Florida will have the BEST weather in America and our weather forecast is PERFECT for Saturday's Freedom Ride -- 53 low and 70 high with bluebird skys. Plenty of firewood will be at Mlles Point.
