One thing you learn when you live this close to the coast is to watch the storms as they form in the Atlantic. I grew up very far inland and really never paid much attention to Hurricanes but I have learned and seen first hand the destruction one of these monsters can bring, even if you don't take a direct hit.
We were fortunate this time, we only got the rain. So far, though, no wind or tornadoes which makes me feel more at ease. Many roads are washed out, and Charleston is closed...yes, closed. The peninsula is inaccessible at this point...no going in or out. Tomorrow is supposed to bring more rains like the several inches we got yesterday and last night. I suppose today was our reprieve. Ahh....Hurricane Season, we respect you!
