So far as "flood-prone" :  no. 

I grew up and spent much of my adult life in Baton Rouge (LA).  As you progress northwards up the Mississippi River from the Gulf, Baton Rouge is at the first point of consistently high ground along the river banks, aside from the high levees that contain the river's seasonal flood stages.  Even though some of the southernmost parts of Baton Rouge are low-lying (and thus below the levels of the river's high-water stages), in my lifetime the levees have successfully contained those high waters from the Baton Rouge area and northwards. 

South of that, there have been levee failures (mostly "leaks") and backwater situations -- mostly related to hurricanes -- that have flooded whole communities in southern Louisiana.  I've fortunately never been flooded. 

I now live just outside the southern town limits of Post Falls, Idaho, which abuts the western edge of the larger town of Coeur d'Alene (pop. maybe 40,000) -- sitting on I-90 between Coeur d'Alene and the Idaho-Washington state line. Our home is just two blocks south of the Spokane River, just upriver from the three smallish-dams that control the water levels on our part of the river and the level of all of the large Lake Coeur d'Alene.  (btw -- that's pronounced " Koor duh-Lane " -- the name is a natural for a guy transplanted here from 'Cajun country; most everybody else trips over the French-trapper spelling!) 

If the river ever rose so fast that it overcame the dams' ability to manage the levels, the water would just flow over the tops of the dams ... and would still be a good hundred or so vertical feet below our yard. 

The elevation of my neighborhood is around 2300 feet above sea level.  So no, "flood prone" isn't an issue. 

But there have been some serious snow accumulations here, back around 2007-2008.

Hi Adraiaan,

I too am from GA...I was born in Macon (1955) and have family living in Cochran...every heard of it?  It is in the middle of the state, hence it is the home of "Middle GA College!"

My parents moved to Maryland when I was three, but I spent many a summer there with my father's side of the family and still visit with my wife and kids.

Did you know that there isa group in this comunity called "Georgians"

Here is the direct link:

Hi Adriaan,

Thanks for your invitation to friendship.  It's an honor to accept.  I hope you are successful in finding a picking partner over there in Georgia.  Playing music with others is one of the greatest pleasures in my life these days, and I would think that you are living pretty deep in bluegrass country.

Hellor Adriaan!  Glad to see you on Seagull Spoken Here ... I'm also a Martin/Seagull owner.  Would love to see photos of your Artist Mosaic at some time.

Hey Adriaan!  Welcome!  Glad to see you play a Seagull Artist Miosaic.  I have one too.  Hope you'll join the Seagull group soon.

"Do We Labor In Life's Vineyard?"


A Work in Progress:

“Do We Labor in Life’s Garden”

Camilla, GA 21 May 2013


Do you labor in Life’s Vineyard, watch the grapes of wrath grow?

While raging at the heavens at the God you still don’t know

Do you just see trouble lurking instead of peace of mind?

Are you still out here searching or just said: Never…
