St. George, South Carolina
We had some pretty heavy rains last night, but they didn’t appear to be a part of Tropical Storm Andrea. I was awake watching the radar and reports on Facebook. You can really get some great info on Facebook and it’s a wonderful resource if you are traveling and don’t get local tv stations. Our local meteorologist is on Facebook and when the weather is bad, he never sleeps, so you can always get current updates from him. Of course, he only gives local reports, but it is still helpful.
The storm is strengthening with some talk of the possibility of it reaching hurricane status. We’re so glad we left, but I don’t know if we are far enough away. It appears to be covering a huge area. There were some tornados last night with some minor damage in Florida. Jeannie and Eldy were probably getting a bit concerned last night…..if they stayed awake that is. :)
The plan for today is to head about 150 miles further inland, to hopefully get out of it’s path.
Another day of traveling….oh goody!
