Please excuse the disruption of the series. Hurricane Matthew passed through (along with the end of the mod). South Carolina was hit by that “killer” hurricane over the weekend. The coast was pretty beat up. The historic Springmaid Pier at Myrtle Beach was destroyed.
It was the oldest pier in the area. There was another old pier in Murrells Inlet that was swept away. There is a great deal of coastal flooding. Thousands and thousands of people are still without power, and will be for a while. A pecan tree fell in the my son’s yard and clipped the corner of his house. Fortunately, there was no damage to the house.
People are still displaced and will be for the time being.
Yet, we are so fortunate. I don’t know that we’ve had any loss of life because of the storm. We have had no looting, no stealing, no violence as a result. Instead, those of us who live in the Midlands and Upstate out of the reach of the storm are reaching out to help others.
But today, I’m starting again now that we are out danger. I’m also out of school for the next five weeks.
