    to demonstrate our recent precipitation; realize we have been parched with drought for around 5 years, until this last couple weeks when i thought i had been kidnapped and shipped off to seattle, this is the cowans ford dam letting out lots o water. Moral, it has really been f@%@#ing raining, thank god it stoped.

    I'm sure youve been there before but if you havent one routing note. In my Delorme it shows double island intersecting with nc 19e, it crosses it but there is not an intersection(di goes under bridge) take micaville loop(in micaville) to pick up di off 19e. we actually passed it and had to uturn and do alittle exploring to find it.
