   Summers are hot across Toccoa River Paddler - Fannin County, GA the south! While climatologists try to warn the world of global warming, most southern residents don't need a ream of scientific data to tell them it's getting hotter. Although local weather is on a different scale than long term climate change, some of the warmest summers are in the record books, with three Georgia cities registering 90 degree temps, or higher, for over a hundred consecutive days.
   Kids know just what to do on a hot summer day. Here in Fannin County, the Toccoa River offers a string Toccoa River Summer Fun of refreshing pools to cool any summer heat-wave. And the Toccoa River Rapids on Aska Road is the perfect spot on a hot Blue Ridge afternoon! Although water released from the Lake Blue Ridge Dam seldom tops 60 degrees, sections of the river upstream (south) of the lake warm up enough to keep your teeth from chattering.
