I love JESUS! I'm a 7th-generation Florida native, dyed-in-the-wool Southron belle. I just recently dusted off my genealogy notes and, thanks to a long-lost relative, nearly doubled the details. We started home schooling when only 'outlaws' did it and still enjoy a daily quest for knowledge. These days, the family spends a lot of time birding, butterflying, spending as much time in 'the woods' as possible while they're still here.
While Withlacoochee River North is flooding, Withlacoochee South is experiencing a different phase. It's odd to realize that, while we've been getting so much rain, there are still drought conditions just a few hours south. On our way home from Clearwater, we made a short stop at Silver Lake Recreation Area in Hernando County. Last time we were here, there were several limpkins working the edge of the river. this time, only two young ibis scoured the few remaining puddles.
