if in-ground pool, be careful not to remove too much water from it during periods of high rain. If the water table rises, it could cause the pool to "pop".

Had to put it in four wheel drive to get out of my house this morning in Parkwood Estates. Could've spun a tire and made it but just trying not to tear it up too bad. Roommate parks in the driveway so I park in the side yard right next to it.

There's a 10' gator swimming down the main road in Shadowmoss - West Ashley.

In my hood earlier...before I switched up cars. Not sure if you can see it, but there is a car stuck in the road 100 yards or so down.

Careful what you wish for, this winter is apparently going to be a very, very wet one for most all of the west coast.

Time for a bigger boat!

I assume this is the remnants of that tropical storm?

I just backwashed about 6 inches out of mine and replaced DE. Got the water just barely making it into the skimmers.

That kinda looks like Brookside rd.
My last place was right next to Turkey Creek. Neighbor had adjacent lot to the creek would fill over a couple feet, almost up to his door.
My property was 8ft above sea level, neighbor must of been around 6 so I'm sure it's pretty bad.

Moved to top of a hill in Goose Creek. Now the water runs off so fast it tries to take my land with it. Just cant win.

Not Brookside...I'm in a new house built last year and they built up the lot. No flood in my yard except by the tidal ditch. Neighbor, who has a newer house, wasn't so lucky. Will be interesting to see how much dirt washed from my yard when it all clears out. I have the same issue as you. Water runs off so fast, it takes the dirt with it.

The end of Remount rd (by Virginia ave) floods too. Half a dozen cars were dead in the middle of the street.
People walking around and trucks driving past.
Glad I got a truck with a little clearance. Good 2 feet across the road.

Watched a guy walking out of the water and another car came by. Gave him the whole wall. Guy started jumping up and down, pissed. Funny, but sad someone would do that.
