LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Despite the scattered showers, we saw Saturday some people just couldn't resist hitting the water. 

In the morning, the Kinchafoonee Creek was at a good water level for boaters. 

Officials said even after the rain we had today, the creek is maintaining normal levels.

One boater said he wasn't even considering the storms before heading out. 

"It was such a nice morning," said Chip Moree, an Albany resident. "There was a lot of water in the creek. And when I rose this morning, I looked on the internet weather and it looked like it would be a great morning to be on the creek, and indeed it was. The water flowed nicely and it was not crowded at all."

Though he said he probably won't be back on the water until after the weekend, he like many others hope they can return to the creek as soon as possible.
