Charleston County has been under a coastal flood watch for most of the week, as a combination of astronomical high tides (spring tides, perigee moon, new moon) have coincided with days of wind from the east, pushing more water up into the marsh. Add two inches of badly needed rain, and navigation on island roads has been interesting. Navigation on mainland roads has been even trickier– I couldn’t get out of the parking lot onto 41st street on Thursday. Since I was only headed into town for a haircut, I decided it wasn’t worth potentially damaging my car, so I turned around!
