Pray For SC

Here in South Carolina, we are experiencing one of the worst (and longest) rainstorms ever. We have had rain every day for over a week. Since Saturday, here in the Pee Dee, it has rained almost nonstop. Other places in SC have had nonstop rain since Friday.

Due to all of the rain, there has been incredible flooding throughout the state. The pictures I have seen of the Sumter, SC, the town where I grew up, make me want to cry.

This graphic gives the totals as of 2pm on Sunday, but it has continued to rain since then, so imagine those totals + about 5-6 inches.

Here in my little corner of the Pee Dee, we have had several streets flood. In fact, yesterday afternoon, every street to exit my neighborhood has flooded so we couldn't go anywhere, even if we wanted to.

We still have electricity and water, but I know there are many who are without one or the other, or both. 

I have friends who have had to evacuate their homes due to the rising flood waters near them.
