We're having rain in South Carolina.
Lots of rain.
We're talking Biblical, grab-some-animals-and-ready-the-ark rain.
Tonight, Tropical Storm Nicole will pay us a visit. Bringing (you guessed it) more rain.
The canal behind the house is making its way up the not-so-steep banks. The street out front is covered in water. And today's downpour has only just begun.
The property manager assured us that the neighborhood has a system in place to manage the water - pumping from one pond to another and ultimately into the Intercoastal Waterway.
I hate to be skeptical, but driving through flooded streets and watching the pond creep toward the house doesn't inspire confidence in their rainwater-management skills.
Nonetheless, I will soldier on. As I told my husband, "We may get flooded, but I'm gonna tweet every minute of it."
Noah would do the same, I'm sure.
