Thanks, Bruce. Mercifully, we did receive some rain, but it'll take much
more to break this drought. Although most of the storm's fury was abated by
the time it got to GA, we did have some local "atmospheric pruning."

Jonathan and I collected briefly in Bear Creek the next day (just SW of
Atlanta), but we didn't encounter any substantial high water. We caught
stonerollers, hogsuckers, 1 logperch, a variety of darters, and some
mystery shiners. I'm giving them a few days to color up before I try to
make a positive ID. They are a light purple and have very fine scales. The
dorsal has a band of red followed by another color that looks like it may
become blue. They have very short faces with the eyes set forward. If I get
stumped, I may appeal to the CRI for help.
