Hurricanes hitting the US do not usually dump over 2 feet of rain so far inland so this is a very unusual event. I had over 9 inches of rain since
last night and I'm in western South Carolina.
A 30 mile stretch of I95 is closed. I had my doubts that this was going to be a serious event last night but have become a believer that it is
unusual. Now I need to wait for the rain to stop to cut up a large tree that fell in my backyard. I guess it doesn't take much wind to knock down
some trees in soaked ground. Actually this tree was slightly split already so it was weak.
Forecast in hardest hit areas is calling for up to another foot of rain in the next day or two.
The good news is that the drought is over in most of South Carolina.
I had been wondering if I should cut down that tree.
I feel lucky I didn't slide into a ditch last night almost hitting a tree in the road. I couldn't stop in time with the wet roads and wasn't
thinking a tree would be in the road. Fortunately, the tree top stopped at the edge of the road and I somehow drove on a narrow shoulder and the edge
of the road and made it through without damaging my car. Hopefully no one else hit the tree. I had no phone to call anyone. I was almost home and
thought everything was good.
Uodate. The sun popped out for a few minutes. I haven't seen that for a few days. Radar still shows rain on 3 sides of the county but here it has
