One of our best contributors has a great idea for a science project for Palmetto school kids … one that doubles as a current event.
Of course schools are closed for the foreseeable future … so parents will have to take this project on themselves.
Anyway, our contributor’s idea centers on the flood waters currently filling South Carolina lakes and rivers to the brim … and beyond. This would be the latest natural disaster drama associated with “Floodmaggedon,” the Palmetto State’s recent rainpocalypse.
How does the science project work?
Easy: Pick a river or lake to see how it rose …
For example the Black River at Kingstree, S.C. (here).
Or the Waccamaw River above Conway, S.C. (which is still rising – here).
Or Lake Marion … which just went above “full pool” (here).
Obviously local officials are monitoring these river levels closely, too … trying to determine whether another round of flooding is headed toward the South Carolina coast.

Cool site. Does Haley know about this one?
She’s not answering that question at this time. Right now she’s focused on saving lives. All you people can reassess whether she knew about this site after the waters have receded and 26 years of rebuilding is complete.
As a contingency plan in the event that the Columbia Canal repair fails, it is wildly rumored that Columbia City will call an emergency super secret meeting to vote on a $1.83 Billion contract to build an aquaduct from Lake Murray to the new baseball stadium restrooms. And it is exuberantly speculated that to conserve water, French bidets will be installed instead of toilets.
—- and I heard a rumor that the baseball team’s uniforms will be that new “flag” design
I hope they do, but most stadiums provide minimal drinking fountains to encourage the sales of their expensive beverages.
I still get a charge out of “Mayor T-bone Shitwater.” Whoever was the origin of that one deserves a 10+ LOL
add another +10 to the sheet…
Open up all the screens for a river and see how the water elevations track at different points as the flood waters flow down stream
Do not allow failed private lake/pond dams to be rebuilt. These empty watersheds should now be engineered as catch basins to prevent future floods. Rich folk home owners on these failed lakes won’t like it much – wahhh!
