Default More rain!

It has rained everyday weeks here in South Carolina. It just started again. Really cutting into my boating. At least I get to walk Fred daily.

Well I got back from Florida (Cocoa Beach) on Sunday and was there for 10 days. It rained the first 2-3 days some but the weather was great the rest of my trip. It has rained everyday here since I got back and my neighbors said it rained virtually every day here in the mid-state while I was gone. So at least where I have been, SC is soggiest at the moment. My brother lives a little north of me in Woodruff. By July 9th he had 9 inches of rainfall and rain everyday which is very unusual for us.

Doesn't look like there will be any droughts this year, water table should be good and no water restrictions for us.

Couple years back we had Fish in the Fairways at golf courses here, they were swimming across the fairway from one lake to the other side lake, Looked pretty cool. Reminded me of your picture.

Regards,
Big R

you should see the river up by my house... 5' higher than the highest of high tides, even at low tide - or about 12' above mean low water, during low tide. Current is running a solid 8-10kts out - even during the incoming tide. 2 miles down river the sandbar was up at low tide - or 12' lower in elevation... its odd.

I don't know what state is getting more rain - but I am sure our county got more than anywhere else... my wheelbarrow filled up over night, and it rained like that for 5 days straight.

You guys must be flooded by now out at Murray. Man, the Congaree is the highest I have seen it in 20 years. Sick of rain, it is killing my boating. If this keeps up, I'll be able to kayak in my back yard.

You would think so with all the rain, but SCEG must be sending it on downstream. The lake is about the same level as it was in May and lower than it was in June. ;? 358.07 at the moment. It was over 358.55 in May. I am definitely tired of the constant rain. I need to re-apply bifen but the rain won't quit..

I would imagine SCE&G is running the hydro turbines and saving tons of coal. Probably Santee Cooper will be flooding,Waccamaw is way out its banks.
