I just texted him and suggested it might be time

Does he have a plan to get out, and where is he going? My crazy BIL has decided to "ride it out" on James Island, so we now have two bedrooms with queen beds and some room for a day or two. If that's an option, we can figure out a way to exchange info. 3452471 at gmail.com should work, just let me know you sent something. I don't check it.

They're in good shape. Their main house is inland. They've got the boats out and inland also. Thanks
for that offer thought. We're going down on the 14th rather than the 5th. "Discretion is the better
part of valor...and all that."

LOL! John, the offer was actually for Luddite's son and his family who live in Charleston. I knew you and your family was OK. If you are ever in need, the invitation is good for you, too!

I missed your offer but thanks. Last I heard my son's wife and the
three kids still living with them are heading out to someplace in
Columbia where their oldest daughter attends the
University of South Carolina.

My son is going to hunker down at the liquor store he has in Mt.
Pleasant. It's a couple of miles inland from his house and on
higher ground.

I have a great deal of sympathy for him. One daughter, 19 years old
in college who has met a guy and they have marriage plans when they
graduate, a 16 year old daughter who will soon be choosing a school
and then, paternal twins, 7 years old, one girl, one boy.

He and his wife have a long ways to go.

Very good. They'll be safe in Columbia. Forecast is for up to 1 inch of rain tonight and ~20mph winds, gusts to 35. No big deal.

Fortunately even the coastal areas are dodging a bullet. There will be some damage and flooding, but much of the punch has left the storm.

Yes, your son has some road left to travel. If you don't mind, post the name of his store. I have a friend that lives in Mt. Pleasant who also happens to be riding it out. I'll let him know about the store so he can stop by sometimes. He likes top shelf bourbon.

The forecast cones have it well offshore when it passes Charleston but
Bern NC and the Outer Banks look like they are getting it all.

We have friends in St James City/Southport just off the ICW before you
get to Oak Island and Cape Fear. I'm concerned that they're in the
line of fire.

The surf will definitely be up. The only saving grace for them is they
won't be on the NE quadrant where the real scary **** happens but that
surge could be spectacular blowing into that cove. That one and the
one north of Frying Pan shoals could both pile up a bunch of water.

His store is called "Palmetto 80 Liquors". The original store is in a
shopping complex called "Shoppes at Seaside Farms", located off the
Isle of Palms Connector road. Address is:

Palmetto 80 Liquors
1985 Rivera Drive #102, Mt Pleasant, SC

He just opened a second store but I have no clue where it is. The
stores are known in the area as being more upscale and
he stocks a lot of top shelf and hard to find booze. It's not anything
like the typical small liquor stores you find in the various strip malls
down there.

The original store has won repeated awards, including "Best in Mt.
Peasant" and "Best in Charleston Area".

His only headache is that liquor stores in SC are very highly regulated
by the state in terms of obtaining a license, operating hours and
vendor/distributor contracts. The state dictates when the store can
open, when it has to close and even dictates when he *has* to be open.

Most states have regulations concerning the sale of drinking alcohol. In
Massachusetts, for example:

Grocery and convenience stores can sell beer and wine from 8 a.m. to 11
p.m. Monday through Saturday. Restaurants and bars can serve from 8 a.m.
to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday. No alcohol sales begin before noon on
Sunday.

It’s illegal to sell alcohol on any election day while polls are open.

Happy hours are illegal in the state. In addition, Massachusetts alcohol
laws prohibit retailers from passing on their bulk buy discount to
consumers. And like some states, Massachusetts has dry towns:

Alford, Chilmark, Dunstable, Gosnold, Hawley, Montgomery, Mount
Washington, Needham and Westhampton. These townships prohibit the sale
of alcohol.
