I’m learning a few things about the weather here.
You know how during a northern winter, your glasses fog up when you go inside? Here they fog up when you head outside in the humidity from an air-conditioned room.
And the rain!
The light showers are actually nice because it cools you off given the crazy humidity. And the rain is warm.
But when it comes down hard, it quickly floods. We’re at sea level so there is no place for the water to go. The drainage system can’t cope.
While a big rain today wasn’t as intense as Monday in Myrtle Beach, the amount of flooding from just an hour’s downpour was an eye opener. What happens when it’s a bigger storm? I’m not even thinking hurricane. (And yes, we again waited it out under cover.)
The flooding on this section of the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway covered a deep pothole that caught out a few of our riders. One took a tumble; another has a sore wrist from hitting it hard but thankfully didn’t go down.
And Georgetown? A cute but quiet town. I was curious about the Gullah Geechee culture. A short day before the big push to Charleston.
