Enjoying a Winter Thunderstorm

In Georgia, most thunderstorms occur during Spring and Summer.  We’re exactly one month away from the first day of Spring, but there was a good thunderstorm in Bent Tree yesterday afternoon.  The weather was raw outside, but things were nice inside.  As for the crazy wind, power outages, etc. that came after the thunderstorm…that was not enjoyable…

Some Bent Tree History

The photo below (circa 1972) shows an old smokehouse that was built on land that is now at the bottom of Lake Tamarack.  The structure was estimated to have been built around 1870 and was moved out of the way when the lake was filled.  It was made of hand-hewn American Chestnut logs, and the door frames were put together with square nails.  The tin roof and the clapboards near the top were added later.
