Who lives in the South?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
We are getting so much rain from the hurricane that it is beginning to flood here in NC. I live 3 miles from work and on my way home just a few minutes ago I passed two car wrecks!

Apparantly we've gotten about 3 inches of rain today and expecting that much more before night's end.

Anyone else getting rained out??

Fay just left here. It rained nonstop yesterday, but we really needed it because we were still in a drought, we needed the rain, not the flooding, though. Be careful!

I live in Tennessee. Yesterday it poured and poured on us (we also found out we need a new roof yesterday) I undertand your pain!

I'm in the south!! It's rained a little yesterday, and it's been steady since last night, but I haven't seen any signs of flooding... Just a good soaking rain.

I live on the coast of NC, and we are expecting flash floods in the next few hours. I'm glad I live on high ground. A mile down the road there is a mobile home that gets flooded every time it rains hard. The people won't move it, though.

I should specify- i'm from Memphis (A lot of Memphians HATE UT) I'm a Memphis Tigers girl myself- went to the U of M a few years!


I agree- definitely a horrible way to find out we need a new roof There are now water stains all over the popcorn ceilings in the house

Only if you eat grits and drink sweet iced tea.

We've been pretty lucky so far, but now they're talking about Hurricane Gustav (sp?) possibly heading this way..

My son got flooded out, when all the rain hit the midwest a few months ago.

I hope you dry out soon, and I sure hope the new hurricane doesn't head your way, too!

Sweet tea....blech!

Fay sent us a few tornadoes this afternoon. We had to hide in the bathrooms at work for a little while. And one touched down in Clemson where my brother's at school, so he had to hide too. But as far as I know, everyone's okay.

It rained for days here in Charleston. It was practically flooding West Ashley and North Charleston, and I'm sure downtown on the peninsula was under water. It's actually rained 14 days out of the last 15 (not counting today if it rains), and the worst rain was from Fay. Everything seemed like a river!

And to top it off, when it rains here, everyone forgets how to drive Have I mentioned I'd rather live back up north?

I live in Wilmington, NC and so far no flooding but we have had rain yesterday and today.

Live in beautiful Brevard county FL, Disaster area. We were very lucky & didn't have any flooding here at our house but all around us people will be drying out for months. Some streets still have "no wake" signs up.

About 6" of rain in central NC, under tornado and flash flood warnings today.

We are currently having a huge storm, complete with hail. I will be staying in today.

I live in the panhandle of Florida right under Alabama and we didn't receive even a half inch of rain from Fay. The front of that storm completely fell apart after it dumped inches in Tallahassee.

I think we were the only part of Florida that didn't have a visit from Fay.

North Alabama here, got loads of rain Sunday and Monday, just some here and there yesterday.....back to hot and humid today though!
post #24 of 25
I do........live in the South that is. The deep South. All we received from Fay was a short downpour coupled with tornado warnings this past Sunday. And now, Gustav is going to soon be barreling down on the Gulf of Mexico. My wish is that it would just fall apart in the Gulf, but that most likely won't happen.
