Carolinas in October

By: carolinagal , 3:39 PM GMT on June 30, 2014



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.

previous blog - 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.)

Wishing you A Very Happy Month... which has come in like a lion here in the UK, so hopefully will go out like a lamb, as Easter is at the end of the month.

Hi Carolina, Thinking of you and hoping the rain lets up and the waters clear away from streets and puddles down there. As a mother or a full grown man, seems your children are always a child in your heart as you worry about them always and forever. He drove to the beach yesterday as we ended our family gathering on the mountain. He was headed to Oak Island and made it with no problem. As soon as my sister-in-law found out she started posting all of the flood state of emergencies and all for the area and txt called me. I told her well he was a whole grown man of good age with a level head and he would make sound decisions I was sure. Reluctantly, I did mention the state of emergency when he txt me and he said something like Yes, there was a state of emergency for the whole state of North Carolina. Yep, he was right. So hope he has a wonderful week at the beach. You take care and great to see your post.

Hello, skye! Thanks for checking. We're fine. Just big puddles in our yard, but nearby neighborhood had some rescue situations. We haven't been out due to many road floodings and washouts. Our rains have been some of the heaviest ever! It's unbelievable how much this affected so many areas of SC.

Hi, Caro!

Do you think we've seen the last of Old Man Winter? I sure hope so. I need to bask in some sunshine and warmth.

We had a light freeze last night but the sun is out, the temp is rising. I'm getting over The Crud and starting to feel like a human bean again.

I missed work most of the week. Called in sick Monday, went in Tuesday and got sent to the employee clinic. The PAC there sent me home and said not to come back until Friday. I didn't test positive for the flu but she said it probably was. Just not a strain the rapid test tests for. It sure as heck didn't feel like a normal cold. I ran a fever for days and that's not usual for me with a plain old cold, esp one with no respiratory or sinus infection.

I wasn't the only one. We've been dropping like flies in the office for over a week. So much for us getting our flu shots this year. I hope they do a better job at predicting the prevalent strains next year.

Good Morning, Carolinagal. Have seen you out in the blogs and thought I would come over for a visit. I like your links to the webcams at Folly Beach and Myrtle Beach. I usually find them on WITN TV's website when I get an urge to check out what's going on at the beach. It has been a COLD few months in Virginia. Take care. Shirley
