ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

It's that time of the year again when we come together with family and friends to enjoy fireworks, and backyard grilling, but nasty weather will soon be approaching South Georgia and it has one South Georgian on alert.  

"Well personally it's going to affect my weekend by making me more conscious," said Tamra Jenkins, holiday traveler.  

The weather is making Tamra Jenkins more conscious about getting on the road.  

"And so I'm really concerned about riding, and driving with the way some people drink and drive and things like that, so I'm really concerned at this particular moment, so I think I will be more conscious and take my time and leave early so that we will arrive safe," said Jenkins.  

While Tamra Jenkins will be on the road during this holiday season with many other South Georgians, public safety officials want to remind individuals to not drink and drive, wear your seat belts at all times, and to not drive through standing water.  

But while the heavy rain may be falling across South Georgia, most folks say they won't let the weather stop them, and they are still going to do their normal Fourth of July routine.  

"No it's not going to affect me because everything is done in the house, you know we having cookout, we having parties and everything so it's not going to affect me, I love the rain actually," said Lisa Bivens, Albany resident.  

"Like I said it's all about having fun and this weather will not stop me, because I'm a go getter," said Ruby Bivens, Albany resident.  

And Public Safety officials want everyone to be go getters this Fourth of July holiday, but be one safely.
