I live in West Ashley, where this article says there is again major flooding. Though like many others, I have fled from the hurricane Matthew. Does someone know, can someone tell me, who can I call, to find out if my street and streets around it are still flooded?
Vanity - one of the seven deadly sins:
It sure is frustrating with this hurricane Matthew. I have evacuated from Charleston, like many others. Now I am many miles away, in a hotel. I have called SCEG, they don't know if the power is on in my apartment. I have no idea who I can call to find out if my street, Ashley Crossing Dr., or other streets around there, are still too flooded to drive there, or if they are blocked by fallen trees or tree branches. I tried to call my apartment complex rental office, busy signal. I called my own home phone, busy signal.
So I called Comcast, they told me Comcast has an outage there until tomorrow (Tuesday) around 9 PM, and that the rental office phone is also on Comcast and so has the same problem, that is why the busy signal. So I don't even know if the rental office was open. Certainly I can't reach them, so they can't tell me if the power is on, if the streets are no more flooded, if they are blocked by fallen trees or fallen branches. The city does not seem to have any road office. I don't know who else I can call. It is so frustrating. Does anyone here know who I can call?
Is there still a curfew in Charleston? My Husband is trying to deliver on his big rig and needs to know?
Trump states that his locker-room banter is a past embarrassment and he said he no longer thinks that way, but he has denigrated women and others through-out his CURRENT presidential campaign. So it isn't who he WAS, it is who he IS and he doesn't have the power from within to control himself. His behavior is ingrained.
Why do counties have seperate curfews? Just leads to confusion for people. Only curfew we heard announced was midnight but later found out Dorchester county decided theirs would be 6 PM, how about some consistency???
Well, I might have to throw my support behind trump. He just made it ok to go grab some pnssy, even married pnssy. Oh, wait a minute, that would make me a deplorable to support a cad! HRC made the statement that half of trumps supporters were deplorable, but after #pnssygate, ONLY deplorables that think like trump will support him.
I think that this is the most important set of words in the whole article, when it comes to moving forward: "...having panel discussions about diversity rather than simply having diverse panels." More of us need to remember this when organizing and initiating cool things. It's easy to reach out to your inner circle to get things done. It's much more important to do the work to expand that circle to include a greater range of viewpoints and experiences. If we do so, we will get bigger things done. There's no question about it.
I am very upset about a Kroger grocery store here in Murrells Inlet or Garden City is a 24 hour store and is staying open through the 24 hours. This store is in the evacuation
zone on Atlantic avenue and highway 17. How could this business be so selfish, these people have families also that they want to be with. We will start getting thrashes of the storm late tonight early tomorrow morning. The Police here are saying do not stay here if you can leave. Bi-Lo closed at 6pm and not opening again until Sunday Oct. 9th. We shop this store all the time and the associates are so kind many of them who have families. The mandatory evacuation was zone A anything east of highway 17. Well they are in zone A and definitely wear it will flood. I just wanted to let you know about this and I would really appreciate if you followed up on this, being that you were the one who named the zones that needed to evacuate. I would like a copy of your response so I can take it to the manager of the store who made this decision. Utterly selfish nothing is more important than family and being with them especially during a storm like Matthew Hurricane level 2 at this point in Gorgia and to continue at this level or get even higher possibly. I thank you for your consideration with this. Donna McCuiston Garden City BeachSC I stayed behind as I am on call for the hospital here which is an essential service.
Two more years have passed since this article was written, and global sea levels have changed less than half the thickness of your fingernail. So much for scientific predicton. It was a hoax.
My suggestion is that you all move to the safe state of Ohio. Although give them time and they will be saying Ohio will soon have monsoons.
Oh' I fogot we do have killer tornados. I am 65 and I did see one once but it really didn't come close enough to scare. We did recieve a few high winds here in Columbus and lost a few hundred trees but that just help our jobless rate for a day. Untill all the local government's promised to remove all trees for free.
Flee to the heart of it all state. Where nothing is imposdible with God our state motto which I do believe although I have found thst he decides when and where miricles happen. We can only ask and hope but God is still the boss. Wether you like it or not.
So, you mean there are equal numbers of all genders and races choosing to put in the hard work to succeed in getting the correct degrees, certifications, experience, etc in this high-demand field...but only white males get hired? Fascinating!
We've been very impressed with Gov. Haley's preparations for this storm. It's hard losing these days out of school and out of work, but I think she's handled it appropriately, with dignity, and with diplomacy.
Where's the Hillary cartoons? "I didn't send any classified emails" " Well they weren't marked" "Well no one will prosecute me" "Everyone knows 50 people the either committed suicide, were murdered, or died mysterious deaths, don't you??...happens all the time". Something like that...
The tech industry has a large shortage of workers. ANYONE who has a passion for tech will get a job. There is a shortage of women and minorities in the tech industry, but it isn't because we are not hiring them, it is because they are not applying.
A couple items. I grew up on Walker St. In the late 50s and early 60s. I believe an entrance to the apartments is crazy. I would think the city planners would not approve it. What did y'all do with all the Asbestos that's buried in the ground behind the plant back toward Dewy Hill. How are you going to get ride of the asbestos in the building. Please don't try telling me there was no asbestos buried on that property because I know better.
The greedy One Hour Limit parking deal is driving visitors , diners, and business patrons away from DT Charleston.
Y'all come to peaceful, happy James Island! :-)
wow we will miss you Ima
So, where are you heading, Ima?
All of this guy's articles are him just complaining about his own issues but in this smug way where he acts like he's talking for "the little guy". How did he even get this gig writing for city paper? Notice how he doesn't mention that he's getting paid to complain about something he probably would have posted on facebook anyway. And that picture of that smug look on his face certainly isn't doing him any favors either. I bet he's one of those people who drives a hybrid and thinks that therefore he shouldn't have to pay parking tickets because he's God's gift to the world. So now he thinks he should be exempt from parking tickets, waiters (which he just HAPPENS to be) should have a mandatory 20% tip, and if you ask someone a friendly question like "are you in school"?, he has a hissy fit. Why is this smug, eccentric man getting paid to write this crap?
