Carolinas in summer

Testing, 1...2...3...

I figured I should update the blog and move past the ice storm from February.

I'd love a nice quiet, sunny beach day for my July 4th plans.... Too much traffic for it to be quiet and I am wondering if Arthur will do away with the sunny.
I'm not complaining - I love beach days - traffic, storms, and all!


Here are some beach webcams. All is pretty quiet right now. (You may need to move your mouse to the top "Cam & Surf Report" and then you have to wait through a commercial - those are the local waves.)

Thanks for the greetings, sandi, GG, and wab. White rabbits to you all. I'm only a week late.
Super busy here having the last blast of "summer" until the daughter goes back to college. I think I"ll get her packed up and then extend my summer into September, after she is gone - it will be plenty hot enough.

Heavens, our poor college students do not complete their term until this weekend, usually two weeks before the schools finish. They do not go back until the end of September, so they do get 10 weeks to study or what most do... earn some money doing a part time job!

Glad Arthur came and went and left yo unscathed:)

Oh my dear! I thought the radar would continue with the current radar - like the maps on your page do. That's one more thing for me to add to my "figure out why this is so" list.

I had hoped Arthur wouldn't have been quite so scary. I am sure glad we are on this side of the storm now.
And, that's what "sisters" are for.

Oh my dear Carolina Sister,
I about had a conniption fit when I saw that radar in your header. I yelled out to hubby--oh no, it's happening again!
It took me awhile to figure out that is an old pre-Arthur's fast journey image.

Hot here, but a nice breeze.

Thank you very much for helping me through the storm.
It meant a lot to me, still does.

Hello sandi and bug! By Friday morning, our weather was just about perfect for celebration. The water was pretty rough, but I don't spend much time in the water itself so I was happy to stay in the shallow waves when I needed to cool off, or wash the sand off (or attempt such anyway.) It seems EVERYone else had the same plans. The last part of the trip, usually a 10 - 15 min. drive, was well over an hour in the traffic. Most years we make the visit overnight and travel the day before, but the storm (among other things) put us in the traffic. That was okay - didn't have anyting else to be doing. :-) And it was worth it to enjoy the beach and time with extended family.

and Sandi - My college daughter has been home for almost two months. Hard to believe she'll soon be starting year two.

Now, Thursday was a different story - thankfully not any damage, but quite windy and rain squalls. I walked on our local beach during Arthur's approach... The light rain was pretty stinging so I didn't get far. The waves weren't like the ones seen on the news in other areas, but the ocean was certainly churning much more than usual. The heavier rain squalls came later, but by the afternoon the clouds and rain had cleared out.

Looks like the surf is still up on Folly at the Washout. I see about 5 guys on the beach with their boards. They've been very happy the last few days!

Hi, Caro.

Been meaning to stop by and see how Arthur treated you and if you had a nice Fourth.

The weather cleared out nicely here by Thursday afternoon. Yesterday was very warm but not too bad if you stayed under shade, which I did.

While the local forecast isn't calling for rain today, the sky sure looks like we might get a shower or two. I'm trying to get a couple of loads of whites and pants on the line, dried and back inside.

Hi Caro, I hope you had a great 4th July, although the weather wasn't what you might call, celebratory!

Did R come home for the weekend, or has she finished for the summer? I forget your colleges complete their terms(semesters) much earlier than we do:)

Checking the webcam for Folly Beach (link above) and I see that the local TV news truck is parked there.

(Sorry for all the bumps of my blog... It took a few trials to get these links to work.)

I added these webcam links into the entry. All is pretty quiet for now. I expect Arthur will stay away from our shore and cruise on by Thursday - although we are currently in Tropical Storm Watch.

It takes a few seconds for the webcam to load.. You may need to move your mouse to the top "Cam & Surf Report" and then you get a few seconds of commercial. Those are not the local waves :-)

Hello & white rabbits!
Thanks for the greetings, GG, sandi, and huri.

Sunshine here today.... this morning. I should have planned this as a beach day.

Hi Fina!
Nice, quiet, sunny beach day sounds good to me too!
I visited my beloved Atlantic Sunday and she was so pretty, rough, but perfect temperature for the toes, and ankles. I wasn't dressed appropriately for a dip, and that was probably a good thing, because the waves were very rough. Let's hope that if Arthur is born, he makes more pretty waves and not much trouble for anyone.
