Carolinas in October

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



October 2016
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.


October 2015
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.)

Hi bug! I've been thinking of you too. Be safe!
I do hope this evacuation is better than Floyd... It has to be better, right? It's already "crazy" around here. There is so much traffic on the highway tonight that I wonder if people are already evacuating.

Around here, everyone gets worried when Matthew gets compared to Hazel. That's was the Hugo for the Myrtle Beach area.

Hi, Caro!

I've been thinking of you, as I've watched Matt. It looks like both of us have a few hairy days ahead of us.

I just hope we both come out the other side with no problems. Other than some chewed fingernails and a few more white hairs.

Did you see Dr. M's post today? He brought up the fact that Floyd's path looks like what Matt's may be.

Boy, was Floyd a disaster. Not so much from damage but from a horrible evac plan. I knew several people that got stuck in the Great Parking Lot, I26.

We took back roads up to Dad's but in a round about way that took us almost twice as long. Mainly because we didn't have a road map with us.

We'll batten down the hatches here and head up to O'burg, where I have relatives. It should be far enough inland that it won't be too bad.

Hello - I was wondering how close to the coast you are... I know Bug is right there.
Hope Matthew moves out to sea.....


Take care :)

Thank you WeatherWise for the October greetings.
I figured it was time to update my blog, although the blog title is still appropriate.


Today, praying for those in Haiti and now Florida; and keeping an eye on the future track.

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.
