What is the Wiregrass?

The Wiregrass is NOT 12 counties shown on your local television station’s weather map. It’s also not someone’s private address or business in Dothan, AL as Google has it listed.

This is a map depicting the entire actual Wiregrass Area as defined by Wikipedia.

The Wiregrass is HUGE. According to Wikipedia “the Wiregrass Region—or Wiregrass Country—is an area of the Southern United States encompassing parts of southern Georgia, southeastern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle. The region is named for the native Aristida stricta “(pictured above), “commonly known as wiregrass due to its texture. area stretches approximately from just below Macon, Georgia and follows the Fall Line west to Montgomery, Alabama. From there it turns south and runs to approximately Washington County, Florida in the northern panhandle. From there it runs east, roughly making its southern boundary along Interstate 10 to Lake City, Florida. From there it turns north, roughly following the Suwannee River back into Georgia and along the western fringes of the Okefenokee Swamp. From here it runs due north back to Macon.”

Major Highways

Also according to WikiPedia, “Interstate 75, Interstate 10, U.S. Route 231, U.S. Route 331, and portions of Interstate 65 traverse parts of the Wiregrass. The portion of U.S. Route 84 through Georgia is known as the Wiregrass Georgia Parkway.”

Military Bases

According to Wikipedia, “The region includes Fort Rucker, a U.S. Army post located mostly in Dale County, Alabama. The post is the primary flight training base for Army Aviation and is home to the United States Army Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE) and the United States Army Aviation Museum, as well as Moody Air Force Base located in Lowndes and Lanier County, Georgia. Moody AFB is the home of the 23d Wing. The wing executes worldwide close air support, force protection, and combat search and rescue operations (CSAR) in support of humanitarian interests, United States national security and the global war on terrorism (GWOT).”

Weather

Wikipedia says “The Wiregrass Region suffers from extremely high humidity in the summer (due to its proximity to the Gulf) and enjoys mild winters. Snowfall occurs occasionally in this region in extremely cold years. The area is also prone to hurricanes and tropical storms, most notably, Hurricane Michael which devastated the area during October 2018.” The climate is sub tropical, but feels tropical that’s why we say when we refer to the weather “It’s not just hot. It’s Wiregrass hot!
