The first time I ever saw rain in the south was during my trip to Charleston, South Carolina. The moment I stepped out of the airport and into the humid, muggy air, I knew that I was in for a treat. For days on end, intermittent showers would fall from the sky and drench everything below. It was an unusual sight, but one that I quickly became accustomed to.

The past few months have been wet in the Upstate of South Carolina. Parts of the state received more than 20 inches of rain which has caused flooding and mudslides. The rains have also caused problems for farmers who are having to deal with lost crops and streams that are overflowing their banks. The weather has also caused some problems for people who live in flood-prone areas.
