As many of my readers know, I call Charleston, South Carolina home and in fact, live on a small island. This week brought torrential rains to Charleston and created massive flooding in low-lying areas – which is all of Charleston. So what’s a city to do when the streets flood and cars float?
Many in Charleston turned to alternative modes of transportation. Some got out their kayaks and paddled through the streets of downtown.
Some people even turned to the horse and carriages typically used for giving tours of the city
Some people just rolled up their pants and went about their shopping
Others got out their inner-tubes and went for a float along the street
Some people just didn’t heed the warnings and got stuck
With so much rain, I wonder what modes of transportation people will turn to next. Anyone have an Ark?
