Hey guys. I wanted to take a quick second to pop in and say that I am okay. Thank you to everyone who reached out to me when they saw that Charleston was experiencing a great deal of flooding. Downtown and the islands got hit very hard; however, even though my side of town got crazy heavy rain there is no flooding where I live (only lots of puddles).
This actually did not have to do with the hurricane, but rather with the fact that we had record rainfall and record high tides all at once. One of those crazy things that happens probably once every hundred years. Yesterday set the highest one day rain total with almost a foot of rain falling on just Saturday. Plus, additional rain Thursday night, all day Friday, and Sunday morning to add to that Saturday total.
It looks awful downtown. The police have blocked it off so you can only enter/exit if you have photo ID proving you are a resident of the peninsula. I hope the rain receded quickly so that people can begin cleaning up as fast as possible. This is a shot of Coach Josh who I train with at Orange Theory fitness as they attempt to take the poor dog out for a walk swim. School is cancelled again tomorrow as nobody can get to the schools downtown. (We will make the days up later on, probably over Thanksgiving break.) I will continue to hang tight at my place safe and sound from all the rain.
Let Me Know –
How has your weekend been?
Did you get hit by any crazy weather?
