Why do I do this?

Several years ago friend and co-worker got me and another of my co-workers interested in weather reporting and it has since became a very interesting hobby.  There are two important things that drive our everyday lives and they are time and weather.  The websites of my friends can be viewed at:  www.georgiawx.net  and www.georgiawx.net/candler

About This City

Metter, the county seat of Candler County, was originally incorporated in Bulloch County on August 17, 1903. Later the county boundaries were redrawn and Metter became part of Candler County.

Metter's beginning, like many other small cities in Georgia, relates to the railroad. The city was established solely as a stop on the railroad. Supposedly, the City of Metter was named by a railroad official for his wife because he "met her" in Metter

There are two places listed on the National Register of Historic Places: The Candler County courthouse, built in 1921, and the South Metter Residential Historic District, comprised of numerous late 19th and early 20th century homes. Old Lake Church in Metter, built in 1839, is one of the oldest Primitive Baptist Churches in existence.

According to 2010 Census, Candler County has a population of 10,998 and the City of Metter has a population of 4,401 persons. Between 2000 and 2010, Metter and Candler County had population increase of 14.8%, compared to the state growth during this period of 18.3%.
