Well, if you are looking at a map, you can see that Floyd county has a
finger-like part pointing north. I live just to the east (my property
borders the county line on the west) of the tip of that 'finger', so I
am north of Rome by about 20 miles or so(speaking of latitudes). Most
of the weather went south of me last night as we benefit from the
protection of the ridges.

It is really nice to have abundant water. I'm not wasteful now mind
you, but it is nice to be able to wash both dishes and clothes, and THEN
take a shower if I want, without having to wait for the well to recharge
or worry about running out of water. The well is still developing, that
is, we still have some silt coming out, but we discovered that we were
using the wrong capacity filters in our system, and once we got the
right filter, no more sediment inside the house. At least now, 100% of
the sediment is caught by filter. It's cool. Over time, I'm told that
we may not need a filter at all.
