Slick road

When the historians tally up 2004 in the Southeast, it will be the summer, fall and winter of rain. Constant rainfall soaked the droughts of years past and left the region with a strong water table for the winter. If snowfall, as some predict, is heavier than normal this year, it will add to the runoff and damp ground in the spring.
