A) A(nother) good article, Paul.
B) Dwayne Green hates it.
"They should just change their slogan to "stay away locals unless you are one of the rich ones." Extremely overpriced."
People will pay what the market will bear. Why do you hate capitalism?
If you're running a business, you need to cope with the basics. If you don't know whether your power bill has been paid, and whether it's smart to give money over the phone of a Saturday, how in the world can we rely on you to hire legal residents and keep up with their tax withholdings?
No offense, but Derek Harris is an idiot.
But Dana Beach is such a great enviro-progressive Democrat. A wonderful man really.
49.50 to start?

Both Charleston county and Berkeley County contain huge swathes
of land. The school districts have to look out for students that are very far from the metro area. simple.
Besides your placing a lot of trust in the weather service, one or two degrees lower and we are talking about a major disaster.
Gang Stalking involves organized stalking and harassment perpetrated by informants, neighborhood watch, corrupt law enforcement, and other vigilantes. Gang Stalking is a modern and illegal version of “Cointelpro” because many are targeted for revenge and for whistleblowing.

Pronghorn has just basically spoken for all of us Downtown and done a fine job of summing up our feelings on this weather (especially the straight into the harbor) and Jaxx just gave all y'all the COLD hard facts on school closings here and why.
So, um, how do you not know if your power bill was paid or not? Just asking. 'Cause I've never owned a business.
(coffeehouses are surprisingly easy to open, you know, and not affected by any silly late night bans)
My feet are cold; I think all the bridges are going to freeze and everyone's going straight into the Harbor.
Free engine block heaters for a decrepit bus fleet. By god, I think you've solved the problem!
It's funny how worked up you Notherners get over a couple of school closings a year due to threat of ice/snow.
"If you like the north-east so much why don't you move back"
"this isn't cold, you don't know anything about cold down here"
What's more extreme, erring on the side of caution a few days a year so that children from less fortunate families without proper foul weather gear aren't left standing outside all morning waiting on a bus...
or packing up all of your belongings, leaving behind all of your family and friends, and moving 800 miles south to escape the cold?
You tough yankees sure know how to handle cold weather.
"Charleston, come for the history, stay for the public urination"
Another week of the Charleston Food and Wine Festival. They should just change their slogan to "stay away locals unless you are one of the rich ones." Extremely overpriced.
Bosox, it's funny because it's true. If only I wasn't too cheap to pay the early lease termination fee.
AlexM, I agree 100%, now brace yourself for the plethora of " If you like the north-east so much why don't you move back" comments!
Having grown up in the north-east, these closures completely boggle my mind. I get that warm-weather cities don't have nearly the infrastructure set up to handle inclement weather as cities in snowy climes, but there is still so much incompetence in the way any temperature bellow 40 degrees is handled that it all seems surreal and insane to me.
Take for instance the closures-in-advance notification rules. The north-east has a much higher rate of two-income households than the south does, yet unless there was a massive blizzard system on the way in, we would never hear of school closures until the morning of. In fact, I still have fond memories of waking up extra-early on snow days to watch the school closings crawl on the morning news and hoping to see my school there. Why is this not implementable here in Charleston when it seems to work perfectly everywhere north of the Mason-Dixon line?
Or the school bus issue - this is a constant problem that gets brought up every winter. Every single one. Why has it not been addressed yet? I don't even mean updating the bus fleet - god forbid we have to pay money for services or even *pearl clutch* raise taxes slightly. Engine block heaters for buses are so cheap as to be practically free, require no specialized training to use, and can be deployed on an as-needed basis.
The whole thing is just ridiculous, and more than a little bit sad.
I would love someone to buy me some tickets, it sounds like a great time.
You don't have to look confused in your picture also, Viraj. Own the column.
