It’s not too early to book one of our SC vacation rentals for the next Cooper River Bridge Run.

Keep an eye to the sky (and the news) when heading to SC vacation rentals

Before we get to that, just a quick word about the weather.  Now that we’ve passed Labor Day and peak season for Isle of Palms vacation rentals, there’s another factor when staying in a Charleston beach house this time of year.  It’s the threat of the “H’ word.

Hurricane Irma is on everyone’s mind, coming as it is right on the heels of Harvey.  Yesterday looked pretty grim for the Lowcountry.  Thankfully, the models are looking a little better for the South Carolina coast, although the SC Governor has said that lane reversals for people who want to evacuate northward on I-26 will begin Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m.

It’s a very serious situation that bears close watching.  Stay tuned to the Weather Channel, or local Charleston stations (Live 5 News, ABC News 4, Channel 2) for the latest updates.
