As the rain fell from the far reaching tendrils of hurricane Matthew, I was taking my sister to the Greyhound station at around 1:30 AM, this fine Saturday morning. Rain. Rain. More rain. We arrived. She checked in; I picked a spot as far from the TV as I could, in the row behind this gentleman and his dog. My sister, however, wanted to sit closer to the exit door, so we moved. This put us almost directly in front…

Well, there was rain forecasted, but it never quite happened, but it’s good to be prepared. šŸ™‚

During this morning’s walk, I noticed several spiderwebs on various bushes, all saturated with dew. We haven’t had any appreciable amount of rain in several weeks, only hot weather, high humidity. The retention ponds are pretty low as well due to the heat and subsequent evaporation, but the ducks are making the best of it. It appears that the herons have moved on to find deeper water. Hopefully, now that summer is officially over, we can get some autumn-like weather…

I took this picture last Friday, the last sunny day that we’ve had for a few days. I don’t mind the rain at all. In fact, I think that we needed it.

In the end, Charleston received about 3-5 inches, but had numerous areas that were flooded, roads along the way too. This weekend, my friend James, and I went for a day trip to Charleston. The days…

I took this photo on September 4th, about a month ago. We hadn’t had much rain at all during the summer. The lake level was quite low. These rocks were normally under a couple of feet of water and the “beach” that I used is usually inaccessible, unless you want to go wading. This morning, before work, I stopped by to have a look. Everything is back under water, the beach is not accessible, and the lake is pretty full…
