Florence Gave Us Glorious Sunset Instead of Rain

I took these sunset photos yesterday and today in front of my townhouse. As you can see Florence missed us. We are extremely lucky. We did not get a drop of rain. Street scene was taken from the front porch. Those with the pergola on the left were taken from the second floor closet window. My terrace was boarded so I could not go out but my husband’s closet has a small window and it was not boarded. Those with unobstructed view were taken from the third floor window. Although the pictures do not do justice to the wonderful sunset, you can still see the changes by the minutes.

Whitney Lake is a close-knit community and we are always looking after each other. So when the news came out of a missing girl from one of our streets, the whole neighborhood was all out in full force searching everywhere. Together with the police force and the fire department, the residents of Whitney Lake were out there looking for her. You can hardly get through our streets with all the police cars, the fire department personnel and the residents all out there helping out.The helicopter was buzzing overhead with searchlights. A police boat with divers are ready to go in the lake. 

Below is the article from Post and Courier. If you have any information please call the Charleston Police – 843-743-7200. Please say a prayer for the little girl and the family.
