The Rains Came To Atlanta This Spring: Lake Lanier Slowly Fills

This spring-born foal is feeling good about life. The sun and spring rains have returned and things are greening up. People of the drought-threatened Atlanta region of the US State of Georgia, too, are encouraged by the rains of late winter and spring, 2008. But, unfortunately, we have to look at the data rather than just let emotions shape our future. Lake Lanier, Atlanta's major water supply, is indeed looking better with every month that passes (see previous month's water level chart posting here). Then, check out the updated comparative water level chart below the fold.
