  1. I lived in Charleston for 15 years, very close to downtown (West Ashley)
    when this hit. We went to Summerville to my husband's parent house
    (brick & mortar since we lived in a mobile home. We had a Honda CRX
    and we drove under trees that were broken in half around destroyed
    buildings. I thought it was a goner. The very 1st home in our community,
    the roof was peeled back like a sardine can. I was mortified! That poor
    elderly lady that lived there, she had evacuated, thank goodness. Our
    underskirting was spaghetti and was everywhere. Broken trees all in our
    yard, (We had no trees, they were tossed there.) The house we were in is
    34 miles from Charleston and the dresser against a wall creaked with
    the wind hitting the house. Talk about scary! Then, here we are, many
    homes with no roofs and fallen trees everywhere.. the snow came. by
    Dec. 22 we were covered in snow. The Cooper River bridges were frozen
    and they were sending cars across basically one at a time.. it was a
    really different time for sure.

  2. I was 8 or 9 years old downtown at roper hospital and my mom started having contractions in the middle of the storm. water was coming into the hospital because Charleston is surrounded by water. we didn't have power for days.

  3. I was in Hanahan S.C.- N.Charleston area during this storm. I'm from the north (mass.) and never experienced a storm like this until Hugo. It was CRAZY!!!
