Why are we so fascinated with sharks? Killer whales are smarter and a strong current is deadlier.

Yet, something about those menacing teeth and sleek fins cue the “Jaws” them in our head and make us click any time we see a new encounter.

When it pours it floods in Charleston. That’s just the way it is.

We all have our own way of dealing with it. Some of us will drive or trudge through the standing water while many simply sit and wait it out.

Others will strip down to their swimsuits and jump into the nearest puddle while a few paddle the streets in a kayak or even wakeboard behind a truck.
