Hopefully the break in the rain tomorrow works out as forecasted for you during your Mother in laws 70th bday party.

My son came down with Strep throat on Wednesday and with the ugly forecast over the weekend we decided to postpone my wife's 40th bday party. 

To many people crammed in the house with lots of cousins running around inside makes for an unpleasant experience lol. 

Our grandson outdoor 6th  birthday 10/1 is inside now.  
I contract to wedding venues with outdoor events and scrambling for this evening and tomorrow

People just don't realize that its NOT a tidal wave amount of water that comes and goes.  It is a relentless, steady rise that lasts for hours.  Just when you think its done it keeps coming.  Wind can push a hell of a lot of water.  Likely to have deaths in the 1000s if too many people didn't haul ass out of there.

That is what is worrying me 

Without being garish I wonder how many drownings have not been discovered .

Garden City, SC -- we stay about 3-4 blocks north of where this was taken. I imagine the parking garage for our condo building is all water. At least our condo building all the units themselves are elevated, and almost every single family home in the area on Waccamaw Drive are all on stilts.

That area is definitely in the highest surge area now. Hopefully with enough forward motion the water won't pile up too high.

In-laws in Hilton Head got some decent winds and rain, but no surge there with the winds off the mainland. Probably some flooding in the creeks with NW-facing mouths, but likely not a huge deal.

Pawleys Island and Murrels Inlet all getting hit hard too. 

Glad the in-laws are good and safe!
