the midlands of SC has ever seen. The mall, Richland Mall in Columbia, where one of my daughter's friends works, is almost completely underwater.

I can barely wrap my head around 2 inches of rain. 21 inches of it is simply incomprehensible.

It looks like repairs are going to be extensive and take a very long time with so many roads and bridges washed away.

I'm in Greenville and we only got like six inches of rain. Our power was out for a bit. A lot of trees down and the Reedy River downtown looked like a miniature Niagra Falls. We missed the brunt of it, though. The Midlands and the coast got hit really hard.

That's right two feet of rain has fallen in Mount Pleasant, SC, across the Cooper River Bridge from Charleston. I've spent several vacations there and used to go through there all the time when I lived in Charleston. A beautiful town.
