You Say Hurra-kin In DeKalb County
I've been watching the Katrina coverage as much as anybody else. It's only human to get fixated by disaster. We're preparing for possible floods here in DeKalb County where hurricane is pronunced hurra-kin. It's definitely better to be living "over the hill" instead of "under the hill". The "hill" is Snow's Hill which divides the county quite neatly between Middle Tennessee and the beginning of the Cumberland Plateau. For those unfamiliar with the county: Liberty, Dowelltown, and Alexandria are under the hill. Smithville is not. I'm betting school will be out here tomorrow, which will be a minor inconvenience to the parents and heaven for the kids.
