Another year, and another October entry. Everyone here is remembering the floods from last year (and some are still rebuilding.) This year, we are watching Hurricane Matthew and preparing. My preps are always semi-ready, but it has been a while since we've had much of a hurricane scare. I had forgotten the feelings that come when it starts to be a "real possibility."
Today, praying for those in Haiti and now Florida; and keeping an eye on the future track.
Insert an address into this search to find flood zone areas. My address is in zone B, but very close to zone A.
Carolinas in October Only one word is needed for "Carolinas in October" and that is "wet." Actually we haven't had any heavy rain until the past hour or so, but everyone has been talking about the rain that is supposed to come. The past two days have been drizzly and overcast and it really sets the mood for rain-on-the-way. Some of the islands and low level streets have been experiencing flooding all week from the tides, so record-breaking rainfall is not a good thing.
And I've forgotten to put out the rain gauge. Maybe I should still put it out.
Carolinas in May - Updating the title. It seems a little chilly for May, but I'm sure I'll soon wish I hadn't said that. I think the coolness is the result of clouds, which we've seen a lot of lately.
It will soon be time to start watching the waters along the Carolina shore. Hopefully another quiet season.
Carolinas in February -
I've been checking forecasts a LOT lately, but not the blogs. I decided that I should at least replace the title here, removing the word "summer." It certainly does not feel like summer today. Although most of the weekend was a wonderful hint of spring.

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.)
